Some property owners will note that their taxes were affected by mill levy increases for Johnson County (1.8 mills), Johnson County Library (.75) and Johnson County Park & Recreation District (.75) taxing districts. For the first time in a decade, the Board of County Commissioners increased the mill levy for the 2016 budget to help maintain and improve county services. We have information about the increase available in this FAQ.

It’s important to note that property values in Johnson County increased 5.9% which also accounts for some of the tax increases.  Additionally, changes in other taxing districts may also affect the overall property tax bill.

Important Notice Regarding Personalized Plates

Please be aware that throughout this year the Kansas Department of Revenue will be mailing personalized plate reorder letters for all personalized plate holders.  By law, all personalized plate holders must reorder new personalized plates every five years.

To ensure you reorder and receive your new personalized plate you must complete the reorder form provided by the Kansas Department of Revenue, make checks payable to Johnson County Motor Vehicle, and return the form to:

Johnson County Mission Motor Vehicle Office
6000 Lamar Avenue
Mission, KS 66202

If you reorder a personalized plate and it is not available in time for your renewal month, the State has instructed counties to issue a standard plate for your vehicle until the personalized plate arrives.  If you have to obtain a standard plate, you must get in line online at www.jocogov.org, by phone at 1-888-956-2657, or in person at either the Olathe or Mission Motor Vehicle Office using the line management system.  Office hours are Monday thru Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m..

We will notify you when your personalized plate has arrived and is ready for pick up.  If you were issued a standard plate for a temporary period of time, then you must surrender that plate when picking up your personalized plate.

 

New walk-in renewal fee now in effect at Motor Vehicles

Beginning January 1, 2015, an additional fee of $5 will be applied to each vehicle being renewed in-person at a Johnson County motor vehicle office. To avoid paying the additional $5 fee per vehicle, Johnson County residents can renew vehicle(s) online at www.jocogov.org or by mail.

The Johnson County Board of County Commissioners approved charging the walk-in registration renewal fee during the 2015 budget process. State statute allows for county treasurers to charge a facility fee, and they can do so at their own discretion.

“Currently about 70 percent of Johnson County customers renew their vehicles by mail or online and we’d like to see that number climb even higher,” said Thomas Franzen, Johnson County treasurer and director of the Johnson County Treasury & Financial Management department. “As opposed to coming into our Olathe or Mission motor vehicle offices to renew a vehicle, renewals by mail or online allow us to be more efficient with tax payer money because our staff can process those renewals more quickly than they can with walk-in renewal customers.”

Motor Vehicle mails courtesy registration renewal notices 45 days prior to expiration. Due dates are based on the first letter of the registered vehicle owner’s last name. More information on vehicle renewals is available at www.jocogov.org.
