Lottery & Gaming Credit (Located in the middle of your tax bill)
In 2012 the Lottery credit will again be applied to all owner occupied property tax bills. The 2012 lottery credit amount is $110.65. 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 2012 maximum First Dollar Credit is $79.38. 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, 2012 and you must have used this property as your primary residence. Primary residence is where you live most of the time. When you are away, it is the home to which you intend to return. You can only have one primary residence. Click here for Credit Form (pdf).
If you purchased the home after the January 1, 2012 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).
2012 Property Assessments
The Village Assessor continues to work on an on-going assessment maintenance program to try and maintain assessments at their Equalized Value or “Fair Market Value”. Over the past year, the Village Assessor has been performing inspections and reviewing assessed values. Please note that assessments may not change from 2011 to 2012, and only property owners whose property changes in assessed value will receive a “Change of Assessment” notice by mail.
Prior to the Open Book Session, property owners may request a “Review of Assessment” by submitting a review form. Click here for Review Form (pdf)
Property owners concerned about their assessment can schedule appointments with the Assessor during the Open Book Session, at the dates and times listed on the “Change of Assessment” notice. Property owners are encouraged to schedule an Open Book meeting with the Assessor as soon as they receive their notice of reassessment. Property owners that wait until the end of the Open Book Session to schedule a meeting with the assessor may not get an opportunity to speak with the Assessor.
Property owners who are not satisfied with their assessments after meeting with the Assessor during Open Book can appeal their assessment to the Board of Review. Objection forms are available from the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office. These forms MUST be filed with the Clerk-Treasurer BEFORE your objection can be heard by the Board of Review.
