How To Be a Lottery and Gaming Credit Winner!

The Lottery and Gaming Credit is a credit that provides direct property tax relief to qualifying taxpayers on their property tax bills.  To qualify for the lottery and gaming credit, the property owner must be a Wisconsin resident, the owner of the dwelling and use the dwelling as their primary residence as of January 1 of the year in which property taxes are levied (January 1, 2022, for this tax bill).  Primary residence is defined as the home where an individual lives for more than six months of the year.   Only one primary residence may be claimed.  Renters do not qualify.  The Lottery and Gaming credit cannot be claimed on business property, rental units, vacant land, garages or other property that is not the primary residence of the owner.

 

To find out if you are getting the credit, look at your last year’s tax bill to see if the credit had been given.  A line for the Lottery and Gaming credit on the property tax bill is located below the Total (tax) and First Dollar Credit lines on your tax bill.  The property received the credit if an amount is listed on this line.  You can also check the County Treasurer’s website or contact the County Treasurer’s office to obtain that information. 

 

How much will you receive?  The Lottery and Gaming credit is determined in November for each year based on the amount of revenues from the Wisconsin lottery, pari-mutuel on-track betting, and bingo during the year.  The credit amount on your tax bill is based on your school tax rate.  Last year residents that lived in the Algoma School district received a credit of $230.73, Demark School district $222.58, Kewaunee School district $253.65 and Luxemburg-Casco School district $219.20.  

 

To apply for the Lottery and Gaming credit, you will need to complete an application.  These forms can be found at the Kewaunee County Treasurer’s Office and on their website. 

 

It may not be the million-dollar jackpot, but it all does help.
