The homestead credit program is designed to soften the impact of property taxes and rent on persons with lower incomes. Manufactured homeowners who are claiming this credit on their 2021 WI taxes will need a rent certificate from their landlord.

The 2021 Rent Certificate needs to be filled out and signed by the landlord. Rent includes the rent for the lot, home, and other fees such as pet fees, garbage fees, utilities or any other fee associated with the occupancy of the residence. DO NOT include late fees, security deposits, payments made directly from government agencies, or Wisconsin Rental Assistance Payments.

You can find the 2021 rent certificate on the Forms and Tools page, under Community Owner Resources in the Members Only
section of the WHA website. If you have any question about the Homestead Credit, you can contact the WI Dept. of Revenue.
