The Johnson County Treasury and Financial Management Department has begun mailing 206,510 real estate and 18,070 personal property tax statements to Johnson County taxpayers.
“The 2019 Tax Statements have been mailed and should arrive in mailboxes next week,” said Greg Baldwin, division director of Treasury and Taxation.
The first half real estate and personal property taxes are due on or before Friday, Dec. 20, and the second half taxes are due on or before Monday, May 11, 2020. The real estate tax statement contains a comparison section between this year’s and last year’s tax breakdown. If the taxes are paid by a mortgage company, the statement will say “THIS IS NOT A TAX BILL” at the bottom. For those taxpayers who pay their statements directly, there will be a return payment stub at the bottom of the statement
Please note that the 'SCH CAPITAL OUTLAY' taxes levied by your local school district are no longer showing in 2019 as a separate taxing authority record on your tax statement. These funds will now be included in your school district’s ‘UNIFIED’ funds. These changes were made for reporting purposes only.
Taxpayers have several convenient options to pay their taxes:
“We encourage taxpayers to pay online or by mail for fast and efficient payment processing,” Baldwin said. “Our goal is to simplify the payment process for Johnson County residents. Online payment from a checking account is less than the price of a stamp.”
There are many other services online 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 find the answers to many questions through the Frequent Questions page.
