Effective October of 2016, the enhanced Neighborhood Revitalization Program aims to promote re-investment and re-development in Atchison’s traditional neighborhoods, including the downtown core, by rebating property tax payments back to property owners who invest or reinvest in their property.
For homeowners, this program eliminates the fear that painting your house or adding a deck will result in higher property taxes. For developers, contractors, and/or investors, more robust property tax rebates make real estate projects/investments more financially feasible.
While projects in the core of the City warrant the highest rebates, suburban or greenfield developments also come with a generous rebate schedule. Please review the full Neighborhood Revitalization Program application or call the Atchison County Appraiser’s office to learn more about the program.
Projects inside the City's core neighborhoods and valued at $100,000 or more are eligible to receive a 95% property tax rebate for 10 years, with rebates of 80%, 70%, 60%, 40%, and 20% to follow in years 11 through 15. Please contact the Atchison County Appraiser's office prior to starting your project.
