Homestead Credit is a property tax and renter's refund for eligible individuals and families depending upon rent, household income and other variables. Individuals must be a legal Wisconsin resident for the entire year to quality. Further information on eligibility is available on the website at https://www.revenue.wi.gov/Pages/FAQS/ise-home.aspx#home1

Forms are available at regular income tax form distribution points (see separate record "Income Tax Forms, Where to Get Them Near Campus" for details).

266-8100 is an automated phone system providing information on refunds and Homestead Credit, ordering forms, assistance in filing, and delinquent tax accounts. Have your Social Security number ready.

Those living in UW Residence Halls and family housing residents of Eagle Heights, Harvey Street and University Houses are not eligible because the university is exempt from paying property taxes.

The website is also available in Spanish.
