The Wisconsin Department of Revenue reminds homeowners that property tax payments must be made by December 31, 2007, to be included as credits on income tax returns file during 2008.
Every year, municipalities send out property tax bills to individual property owners. Property tax payments are a legitimate credit property owners may claim on income taxes.
However, property owners must pay their bill on or before December 31, 2007. If property taxes are paid on or after January 1, 2008, the credit cannot be taken until filing income taxes during 2009.
Homeowners with questions or concerns about property tax bills may contact local municipalities.
