The Legislative Audit Bureau (LAB) released the yearly Wisconsin Lottery financial audit required by State Statute 13.94(1)(em). Wisconsin Lottery sales increased 3.4 percent from $547.6 million in Fiscal Year (FY) 2011-12 to $566.1 million in FY 2012-13. Wisconsin Constitution Article IV Section 24(6) requires net proceeds from the Wisconsin Lottery be used for property tax relief. Thanks to the increase in sales, property tax relief increased from $155.9 million in FY 2012-13 to $171.4 million for FY 2013-14.
