SUMNER COUNTY NEIGHBORHOOD REVITALIZATION PROGRAM
The Neighborhood Revitalization Program is intended to promote the revitalization of the area of Sumner County through the rehabilitation, conservation, or redevelopment of the area in order to protect the public health, safety or welfare of the residents of the County. K.S.A. 12-17, 115 defines the meaning of a neighborhood revitalization more completely. A tax rebate incentive is available for certain rehabilitation, improvement, and new construction within the area.
The Neighborhood Revitalization is a five-year program with up-to a 95% tax rebate on the improved value (land not included). How the program works is simple:
Step 1: In order to qualify, you must be the owner of the land and property.
Step 2: Make sure your project cost is more than $5,000
Step 3: Verify that you are not delinquent on any taxes. This will disqualify you from the program.
Step 4: Complete the application and return to the Appraisers Office with the $100 filing fee.
Step 5: Obtain building permits if required, take pictures prior to the start of the project.
Step 6: Start construction or remodel.
Step 7: Finish the project within 18 months. Once the project is completed, notify the Appraisers Office for final pictures and measurements.
Step 8: Submit final itemized cost list and any final paperwork to the Appraisers Office.
After paying all your taxes in full each year of the five-year program, you will receive a check from the Treasurer’s Office.
