To Qualify: 1) You must own a home in Wisconsin. 2) You must have occupied that home as your primary residence on January 1 of the year in which the tax is levied.
A primary residence is the home in which a property owner lives for more than six months of the year. If temporarily absent, a primary residence is the home to which the owner returns.
Parents deeding their land to children with no life estate on the deed will NOT get the lottery credit.
If you feel you qualify, and there is not a lottery credit on your tax bill, contact the Rusk County Treasurer’s Office at 715.532.2105. There may be some exceptions to the January 1st qualifying date, so please call their office for more details.
