In 2017 the Lottery credit will again be applied to all owner occupied property tax bills. The 2017 lottery credit amount is $131.22. The credit amount on your tax bill is based partially on the Greendale School tax rate. The Lottery Credit remains with the property. There are no provisions for filing a claim for prior years’ Lottery Credit. This year every property tax bill for real property with a value in the improvement value field will again receive a First Dollar Credit. The 2017 maximum First Dollar Credit is $74.98. If you do not receive the Lottery or First Dollar Credit on the tax bill for your primary residence, you may still be eligible to file a claim to receive the credit if filed with your tax payment by January 31st.
You must have been the owner of this property on January 1, 2017 and you must have used this property as your primary residence. Primary residence is where you live most of the time.

If you purchased the home after the January 1, 2017 date, the new owner must attest that to the best of his knowledge the previous owner owned and used the home as their primary residence as of January 1. Click here for Buyer Form (pdf).
