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
https://www.ksrevenue.gov/pdf/k-40svr.pdf. Applications must be
submitted to the KDOR by April 18, 2023.
