Johnson County residents who are 65 or older or are a disabled veteran and who meet income and other requirements may now apply for up to $200 in property tax relief. 

Residents can now apply to participate in the new program online by completing the application form and submitting it, along with proof of income and/or disability status. The form can be submitted in person, by email or by postal mail. 

Those interested in participating in the program should submit the application before the April 15 deadline.

Residents must be at or below income limits and have a home with a maximum appraised value of $384,600. A complete list of Income and other program requirements is available on the county’s website.

In 2023, the Board of County Commissioners authorized $500,000 in funding for the county to provide this new pilot program to offer property tax relief to low-income seniors and disabled veterans. 

“As property values continue to increase, we know that property taxes can be a particular hardship for some members of our population, particularly those on a fixed income,” said Mike Kelly, chairman of the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners. “We hope this initiative will help provide some relief to as many seniors and disabled veterans as possible.”

While this program covers only the county’s portion of a resident’s property tax bill, other property tax programs are also available through the state. Information on those programs is available at jocogov.org/PropertyTaxRelief. Many Johnson County cities also offer programs.

More information is available online at https://www.jocogov.org/jocoseniorveterantaxrelief. The program is also the subject of the latest edition of the JoCo On the Go podcast. Anyone with additional questions may email PropertyTaxRelief@jocogov.org or may call 913-715-2638.
