Topeka Initiates Application Period for Property Tax Rebate Program

366

The City of Topeka is notifying elderly residents about a recently introduced property tax rebate initiative designed to alleviate the financial strain of property taxes.

Earlier this week, the City of Topeka disclosed comprehensive information about its property tax rebate program, which had experienced a minor delay. 

The primary objective of this program is to extend financial assistance to individuals aged 65 and older who may face challenges with property tax obligations.

The inception of this program dates back to its approval by Topeka’s City Council in September of the preceding year. 

It is essential to note that this initiative is separate and distinct from the State of Kansas Homestead Refund Program, although it may share certain resemblances in its overarching goals and objectives. 

The City of Topeka’s commitment to addressing the specific needs of its elderly residents is underscored by the introduction and implementation of this property tax rebate program.

The initiative facilitates a rebate, synonymous with a refund, covering a portion of the property taxes remitted by residents of Topeka for their homes, as outlined in a city press release. 

It is crucial to note that the rebate is derived from, and is limited to, the original property tax amount paid to the city.

However, it is imperative to highlight that this program has specific eligibility criteria, making it unavailable to certain individuals, such as renters. 

To be eligible, applicants must own and reside in their primary residence within the city limits, fulfilling all other stipulated criteria for the rebate. 

The disbursement of rebates will follow a first-come, first-served approach until the allocated funds are fully utilized.

Printed application forms can be obtained in person from the document holders located in the lobbies of City Hall and the Holliday Building. 

Electronic submissions will not be considered valid. For inquiries regarding the program, please direct your questions to [email protected] or contact 785-368-3970.
