According to a news statement from Governor Mark Gordon’s office, the application period for the updated property tax refund program has begun. The program aims to help Wyoming property owners having trouble making their property tax payments.
Gordon has highlighted the impact of increasing property taxes on low and fixed-income homeowners. Gordon said, “With this program, Wyoming is taking a step forward toward helping those who need it most.”
“We are committed to ensuring that this program helps homeowners in need. Target relief ensures that those who need assistance the most get it without eroding tax revenue from local governments. My hat’s off to the legislature for recognizing the importance of this program.”
Homeowners may apply for a refund of up to half of the median residential property tax amount or 75% of their property tax bill under the enlarged scheme authorized by the legislature earlier this year.
Wyoming property owners must fulfill income and residence criteria to participate in the property tax relief program. You may get an application through the county treasurer’s office or the Department of Revenue’s website. The June 5th, 2022, application deadline is approaching for the 2022 property tax.
