Property Tax Refund Program
The State of Wyoming voted in March 2022 to fund the 2021 Property Tax Refund Program.
The State of Wyoming Department of Revenue has announced that the Property Tax Refund Program has received the necessary funding to administer this program for 2021’s property taxes.
Pursuant to W.S.§ 39-13-109, eligible persons may apply for a refund of property taxes that were paid on time for the preceding calendar year. Taxes paid are required to be upon the applicant’s principal residence.
Qualifying taxpayers may reduce their property tax liability if the applicant has been a resident of this state for not less than five (5) years, their household income is equal to or less than the greater of three fourths (3/4) of the median household income for the state or county ($73,658 for Teton County) in which you reside as determined annually by the Economic Analysis Division of the WY Department of Administration and Information.
There are certain asset limitations. Your total personal assets cannot exceed $133,651 per adult household member. In other words, if you own other real estate, bank accounts and investments, they cannot value in excess of $133,651 per adult household member. However, you may exclude the value of your home, a car for each adult household member, and any retirement accounts (IRA’s, 401K plans, Medical Savings, etc.).
