Kansas Program Eligibility

Property Tax-Aide features two programs in Kansas: The Homestead Refund and Kansas Property Tax Relief for Low Income Seniors (SAFESR). A claimant may receive either a Homestead or a SAFESR refund but not both.

Those who qualify for a SAFESR refund should also complete a Homestead refund claim in order to determine which refund claim will give them the largest refund. Once it is determined which claim would provide the largest refund – FILE ONLY ONE REFUND CLAIM – either the SAFESR (K-40PT) or the Homestead (K-40H) – BUT NOT BOTH.

The information on this page is updated as new information becomes available by the relevant tax agencies.

Homestead Refund

The Homestead Refund is a rebate program for the property taxes paid by homeowners. The refund is based on a portion of the property tax paid on a Kansas resident’s home. The maximum refund is $700.

Application Deadline

File your claim after December 31, 2023 but no later than April 15, 2024.

Kansas Property Tax Relief for Low Income Seniors (SAFESR)

The Property Tax Relief claim (K-40PT) allows a refund of property tax for low-income senior citizens that own their home. The refund is 75% of the property taxes actually and timely paid on real or personal property used as their principal residence. Claimants that receive this refund cannot claim a Homestead refund.

Application Deadline

The Form K-40PT may be filed with the Kansas Department of Revenue anytime between January 1, 2024 and April 15, 2024.

Property Tax-Aide has independently selected the property tax relief programs featured on this website that we think are the most relevant and beneficial to older adults. It is not an exhaustive list of all property tax relief programs available in each state. Please consult your local tax agency for a comprehensive listing of property tax relief programs in your area.
