Homeowners questioning credit on property tax bills
As Wisconsin property owners get their local tax bills this month, some are questioning a new credit they've never heard of. It's called the first-dollar credit, and it takes $30 to $35 off what you owe.
The state provides the tax break, but not with new money.
According to Neenah finance director Mike Easker, they redistributed $75 million that's normally used for state school tax credits and they adopted a new formula based on the first $3,900 of a property's value.
