What is the Kiowa County Neighborhood Revitalization Plan (NRP)?
The NRP is a property tax rebate program established to encourage development in Kiowa County. The program allows for a graduated 10-year rebate on property taxes assessed on improvements made to properties within the county. Both new construction and improvements to existing structures are eligible for the program.
How does the NRP work?
The NRP provides a refund on a portion of the property taxes that result from qualified improvements made to a property. The rebate is provided for 10 years after the completion of the improvements, with larger refunds provided at the beginning and smaller refunds at the end.
What is a qualified improvement?
A qualified improvement is generally either the construction of a new structure or the rehabilitation/remodeling or an existing structure that increases the assessed value of a property by at least $5,000. Structures must be permanently affixed to the property to qualify. The program is open to both residential structures and commercial structures. For a more complete description of a qualified improvement please see the full program details below.
What kind of rebates are available?
Initial tax rebates for properties participating in the program start at 95% and gradually decline over the 10-year program. For a full schedule of the rebates available please see the full program details below.
How do I apply?
Applications must be obtained in-person at the Kiowa County Appraiser’s Office. The Appraiser’s Office is located on the main floor of the Kiowa County Courthouse in Greensburg.
What else should I know?
First and foremost, any property participating in the program must have its application completed and approved prior to the start of construction on the improvements. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
Second, any property that becomes delinquent in the payment of property taxes will be removed from the program. Any subsequent rebates the property was scheduled to receive will be forfeited.
