Taxpayers are beginning to receive mail from Johnson County Government’s Treasury and Financial Management department as they have begun mailing 200,694 real estate and 20,874 personal property tax statements.
The deadline for the first-half real estate and personal property taxes is Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2016, and second-half taxes are due Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
The real estate tax statement includes a comparison of this year’s and last year’s tax breakdown. If taxes are paid by a mortgage company, the statement will say “THIS IS NOT A TAX BILL” at the bottom. Taxpayers who pay their statements directly will have a return payment stub at the bottom of the statement.
Taxes may be paid via several options:
- Online at jocogov.org — Tax payments may be submitted electronically using the eCheck option for $1 per transaction, or by credit card (Visa, MasterCard and Discover) for a 2.4 percent fee per transaction.
- By mail — Taxpayers may mail a check along with the payment stub to P.O. Box 2902, Shawnee Mission, Kansas, 66201.
- In person — Taxpayers may make a payment at TFM’s office location, 111 S. Cherry St., Suite 1500 in Olathe. Accepted forms of payment include cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover (payment by credit or debit card includes an additional 2.4 percent service fee).
Check TFM’s website for many other services that may be helpful during tax season. Taxpayers may view online an electronic version of their tax statement and print off tax receipts once their payment has been processed.
