Lottery and Gaming Credit
  • To qualify for the lottery and gaming credit, an 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 the property taxes are levied. If temporarily absent, typically for a period no longer than 6 months (hospital, vacation, incarcerated, etc.), it is the home to which the owner returns.

    The average lottery and gaming credit in Pierce County is approximately $120. The exact amount is based on the school district in which your residence is located.

    To obtain a lottery and gaming credit application, please call the Pierce County Treasurers office at 715.273.3531 Ext 6424

    To find more information on the lottery credit, go to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue website link: http://www.revenue.wi.gov/faqs/slf/lottcr.html
