Johnson County Government’s Treasury and Financial Management department has started mailing 200,694 real estate and 20,874 personal property tax statements to taxpayers.
The first-half real estate and personal property taxes are due on or before Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2016, and second-half taxes are due on or before Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
The real estate tax statement contains a comparison section between this year’s and last year’s tax breakdown. If taxes are paid by a mortgage company, the statement will say “THIS IS NOT A TAX BILL” at the bottom.
• For taxpayers who pay their statements directly, there will be a return payment stub at the bottom of the statement.
• Taxpayers have several options to pay their taxes:
• Online — Through, tax payments may be submitted electronically using the eCheck option for $1 per transaction, or by credit card (Visa, MasterCard and Discover) for a 2.4 percent fee per transaction.
• By mail — Taxpayers may mail a check along with the payment stub to P.O. Box 2902, Shawnee Mission, Kan, 66201.
• In person — Taxpayers can make a payment at TFM’s office location, 111 S. Cherry St., Suite 1500 in Olathe. Accepted forms of payment include cash, check, Visa, MasterCard or Discover (payment by credit or debit card includes an additional 2.4 percent service fee).
• There are many other services on TFM’s website that may be helpful during tax season. Taxpayers may view an electronic version of their tax statement and print off tax receipts once their payment has been processed.
