During the 2022 Kansas session there were many tax changes that passed into law. One of those changes was a property tax freeze for low income seniors and disabled veterans.
In order to qualify for the 'freeze' a household annual income must be $50,000 or below, a homeowner must be 65 years of age or older, and the value of the home cannot be above $350,000.
A veteran must be 50% or more disabled for the entire year applying for the property tax relief.
Property taxes are paid to the county and then a person may apply for a refund on the increase, the 'freeze', to the Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR).
KDOR recently posted the application for the property tax freeze at Applications must be submitted to the KDOR by April 18, 2023.
