Archaeological Sites Property Tax Exemption Program | Wisconsin Historical Society

The Archaeological Sites Property Tax Exemption Program provides a tax exemption for property that contains an archaeological site listed in the National Register or State Register of Historic Places. The intent of the program is to provide an incentive for landowners to protect significant archaeological sites on their lands.

To obtain the tax exemption, the landowner must agree to place a permanent protective covenant on the archaeological site. The covenant contains a legal description of the site and defines landowner and Wisconsin Historical Society obligations. Learn more in our article About the Archaeological Sites Property Tax Exemption Program.
