Homestead Credit Education Seminar in Milwaukee – Thursday, Jan. 24

Friday, January 18, 2013 at 1:41 PM by

Kudos to the WI Department of Revenue (DOR) and the Social Development Commission Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program for scheduling an education seminar on the Homestead Credit program next week. 

The Homestead Tax Credit is designed to help low-income renters and homeowners in Wisconsin.  It provides well-targeted property tax relief to low-income households (with annual income less than $24,680), but many people who are eligible don’t claim the credit.  Thus, we’re very happy that DOR is partnering with local groups to help disseminate information about the Homestead credit.  (Please help spread the word!)  

The Milwaukee seminar on Thursday, January 24, will have two sessions:

     3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. session for property owners and landlords

     6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. session for renters, taxpayers and general public

Where: Social Development Commission, Jo’s Learning Center, 4041 North Richards Street, Milwaukee, WI 53212

For more information about the Homestead Credit and other state and federal tax credits for low-income households, see our flyer (available in English, Spanish and Hmong).   And see this DOR fact sheet about the Homestead Credit:
