You may claim a lottery and gaming credit for a tax year if, on January 1 of the tax year, you were an owner of the property and used that property as your primary residence. Note: Your primary residence is where you live most of the time. When you are temporarily away, it is the home to which you intend to return. You can have only one primary residence and you may only claim one credit. If you meet these requirements, you may claim the lottery and gaming credit by going to either the County Treasurer's Office, or online and completing an application form. This completed form must then be returned to the Bayfield County Treasurer's Office.
