The state lottery's contribution to property tax relief is smaller this year.
Department of Revenue officials say that's due in part to a lack of large jackpots that dampen ticket sales.
The average Wisconsin homeowner will get an $81 dollar credit this year funded by state lottery profits.
Last year's average was $93 dollars.
The credits are calculated based on school district tax rates and fluctuate from community to community.
The President of the Wisconsin Taxpayer's Alliance President says the amount of property tax relief from the credit is dropping statewide on a percentage basis.
