On August 8, 2019, the Johnson County Board of Commissioners (BOCC) adopted a $1.26 billion budget for next year with a constant mill levy.
The BOCC approved the county’s FY 2020 Budget with an estimated mill levy of 26.013 mills, the same as the existing mill levy. This includes an estimated mill levy of 19.024 for the County Taxing District, 3.901 mills for the Johnson County Library taxing district and 3.088 mills for the Johnson County Park & Recreation District taxing district. One mill equals $1 on every $1,000 of a homeowner’s assessed valuation.
The calculations are only for Johnson County Government and do not include other taxing entities, such as the state of Kansas, cities/townships, school districts or special assessments/special districts. The County Taxing District portion of an annual tax bill is approximately 15%.
The final setting of the mill levy for the next fiscal year will be established by the end of October with the final property valuations by the Johnson County Department of Records and Tax Administration.
On average, residential property owners will pay $987 in county property taxes for 2020— about $82 per month, based on the average home value in the county, approximately $330,000.
