Given the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and the impact it has made on the community, the Johnson County Appraiser’s Office has extended the Informal Appeal filing deadline to April 17 at 5 p.m.
For the sake of convenience, there are three ways in which to file an informal appeal. The Appraiser’s Office recommends submitting appeal applications online at jocogov.org/dept/appraiser/home or mailing with a postmark on or before the April 17, 2020, deadline. Lastly, appeals can be placed inside the Appraiser’s Office DROP BOX located outside the front door at 11811 S. Sunset Drive in Olathe.
Appeal applications must include all supporting documentation at the time of submittal.
Once the appeal is received, the Appraiser’s Office will review and process the application, schedule the telephone hearing and mail a confirmation letter with the date and time of the hearing.
A hearing based on evidence (HBE), is another option for property owners. This is streamlined by the submittal of pictures, outside appraisals or other documentation. The appraiser will review and then decide if there should be an adjustment made based on the evidence submitted.
Please note, in-person hearings are not being conducted. As a reminder, appeals are not based on current economic conditions but, rather on fair market value as of Jan. 1, 2020.
