*Lottery & Gaming Credit

You may claim the Lottery & Gaming Credit if, on January 1, you were an owner of a property and used that property as your primary residence. If you meet these requirements, you may claim the credit by filing Form LC-100 "Lottery and Gaming Credit Application" with Marinette County Treasurer.

Primary residence is defined as the home where an individual lives more than six months of the year. If temporarily absent, it is the home to which the owner returns. Only one primary residence may be claimed. Renters do not qualify. {ss.79.10(1)(dm), (9)(bm) Wis.Stats. - Click here for more information}

If you do not receive a Lottery and Gaming Credit on your current tax bill, and you were eligible, please notify the Treasurer to whom you pay your taxes, before paying your tax bill. They will be able to add the Lottery and Gaming Credit any time prior to accepting your payment.

Once your payment is applied, the only way to receive the credit is by applying for it through Wisconsin Department of Revenue. You will need to file Form LC-300 "Late Lottery and Gaming Credit Application", with Wisconsin Department of Revenue. Applications need to be submitted prior to October 1st each year.

Your property does not qualify for Lottery and Gaming Credit if it is:
*No longer your primary residence
*Is a rental property
*Is vacant or sold
*Other (explain)
If any of these are true, you will need to file Form LC-400 "Lottery and Gaming Credit Removal Request" with Marinette County Treasurer. This is especially important if you move out-of-state, and want to be able to apply for the out-of-state tax credits, which may be substantially greater.
