Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact on Property Tax Payment Options

The Johnson County Treasury and Financial Management department will reopen the tax collection office located at 111 S. Cherry St., Suite 1500 in Olathe on Monday, May 11 in a limited capacity. The second installment of 2019 property taxes are due on or before Monday, May 11. In order to continue to protect the community’s health and safety and in conjunction with CDC guidelines, below are some recommendations on how to pay property taxes in Johnson County.

It is strongly recommended that taxpayers use these payment options and avoid visiting the office location:

  • By Mail – Taxpayers can mail a check along with the payment stub to PO Box 2902, Shawnee Mission, KS 66201.  To avoid interest, payments by mail must be postmarked on or before May 11.  Do not send cash by mail. It is recommended that cash customers purchase a money order and pay by mail.
  • Online - On the webpage, taxbill.jocogov.org, tax payments may be submitted electronically using  the eCheck option for only $0.50 per transaction, or by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover) for a 2.4% fee per transaction.

Payments will be accepted in person in a limited capacity with these recommendations:

  • Only cash or multi-tender payments that cannot be paid online or by mail should be paid in person.
  • Check payments made in person will be asked to use the drop box located outside of the office lobby.
  • The office lobby will be restricted to only those customers currently being served. 
  • In person transactions will be limited to five or less, to keep the line moving quickly. Payments with five or more transactions can be placed in the drop box.
  • All other customers will be asked to wait in line outside of the lobby and observe a six-foot minimum social distance which will be indicated.
  • CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

On April 23, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners authorized the acceptance of partial payments on second half real estate and personal property taxes due on or before Monday, May 11.  A list of questions and answers about partial payments has been added to the Frequent Questions page on the county’s website.

There are many other services on the tax bill webpage that may be helpful this tax season. Taxpayers may view an electronic version of their tax statement and print off tax receipts once their payment has been processed. They may also find important Tax Forms and get many questions answered through the Frequent Questions page.
