Johnson County property owners can expect estimated tax notices by mail in early August
In early August, an estimated tax notice will be mailed to Johnson County property owners with information about property tax revenues. This is not a bill and is a notice of whether taxing subdivisions plan to exceed their revenue neutral rate for the upcoming budget year.
Taxing subdivisions include Johnson County Government, Johnson County Park and Recreation District, Johnson County Library, cities, public school districts, and fire districts among others.
According to Johnson County Clerk Amy Meeker-Berg, the estimated tax notices will be mailed to approximately 220,000 property owners on or before Aug. 10.
“This notice is for informational purposes only. It is not a bill and should not be paid,” Meeker-Berg emphasized.
The estimated tax notices will include:
- Information about each property’s values and taxes
- Dates, times and locations for upcoming public hearings for taxing subdivisions that plan to exceed their RNR
More information about the estimated tax notices including a sample of the notice is available at jocogov.org/EstimatedTaxNotice.
Johnson County’s proposed FY 2023 Budget exceeds the revenue neutral rate in all three of its taxing jurisdictions – County District, Library District and Park and Recreation District.
The county’s public hearing is scheduled at 6 p.m., Monday, Aug. 22, in the Board of County Commissioners’ hearing room, on the third floor of the Johnson County Administration Building, 111 S. Cherry St., in downtown Olathe. Entrance into the building can be made through the east doors on Cherry Street.
The hearing will require three separate motions to approve each of the county’s three taxing districts exceeding the revenue-neutral rate.
