Property Tax Credit
Wisconsin Veterans and Surviving Spouses Property Tax Credit
The Wisconsin Veterans and Surviving Spouses Property Tax Credit program provides a refundable property tax credit for the primary residence (in-state) via the state income tax form for:
- Eligible veterans age 65 or older who (1) entered service from Wisconsin* and (2) have a combined VA service-connected disability rating of 100%.
- The unremarried surviving spouse of an eligible veteran.
- The unremarried surviving spouse of a veteran who entered active duty as a Wisconsin resident, died in the line of duty, and was a Wisconsin resident at the time of death.
For additional information, instructions on how to apply, and request form see the WDVA B0106 brochure (Wisconsin Veterans and Surviving Spouses Property Tax Credit).
*Note: Unlike most Wisconsin state veterans benefits which are extended to veterans who move from another state and establish residency here, the tax credit requires that the veteran entered the service from this state.
