What is the Senior Citizen Quad Payment Program?

The Senior Citizen Quad Payment Program allows eligible Senior citizens the option to pay the county real estate tax bill on their place of residence in four equal installments without the accrual of interest and penalty. The first installment must be paid on or before December 31st of the tax year.  The subsequent installments must be paid on or before February 28, May 31 and August 31 respectively of the year following the tax year.  The Quad Payment Program does not apply to the payment of non real estate taxes.

PLACE OF RESIDENCE as used in this section shall mean the single assessed residential location within Jackson County where an eligible taxpayer actually resides.

To qualify for the Senior Citizen Quad Payment Program:

  • You must be 62 years of age or older by December 31 of the tax year; and
  • You must live at the address which you desire to have covered by the quad installment payment option; and
  • You (not a Trust) must own this real estate in fee simple, or as a co-tenant, by tenancy in the common, joint tenancy, or tenancy by the entirety; and
  • All prior year taxes must be paid and not delinquent; 
  • The property is assessed solely as residential property and
  • You must apply for the program and meet all requirements to remain in program.

Exclusions:  Real estate held in the name of a trusteeship and/or real estate which taxes are paid by a financial institution with the obligation to pay these taxes as a service from escrow accounts are not eligible for participation in the Senior Citizen Quad Payment Program.

How do I sign up?  

If you were already enrolled in the prior senior half pay program, you will be automatically enrolled in the new quad plan without the need for a new application.

If you meet the qualifications listed above, you may apply for the Senior Citizen Quad Payment program by providing proof of your age and your residency at the property for which the Quad Payment installment option is being sought.  To apply, please print out the Senior Citizen Quad Payment Plan Application, complete this application and then mail or fax in the application requesting enrollment in the program along with photo copies of your driver’s license, state ID or other document(s) which confirm your age and address.

Return application and proof of age and residence to:
 Collections Department
 415 E. 12th Street, Suite 100
 Kansas City, MO 64106

 Or Fax to (816) 881-3142

Notice: The fax machine is staffed during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays observed by Jackson County).

Will I still receive a tax bill?

As long as a tax service company has not requested your bill to pay on your behalf as part of an escrow service, an annual bill will be mailed to you.  Yet to be decided is whether this bill will include payment coupons to be used for the rest of your quad payments or whether the County will mail you a bill before each quad pay installment is due.

How do I make my quad installment payments?  

Cash, Personal check, cashier's check, bank draft, money order, are accepted at the Collections Department Offices and by mail (except cash).  Please do not send cash through the mail.  One check may be written for multiple bills of personal property and real estate, if the total of the bills are added correctly.  Mailed payments must be postmarked by the United States Postal Service no later than December 31.  Payments postmarked after that date will be assessed interest and penalties.  In addition, Discover credit card may be presented in person at our Kansas City and Independence County Collections Department Offices. There is a convenience fee charged for the Discover card payment option.

Notice: The Jackson County Courthouse and the Jackson County Courthouse Annex are open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays observed by Jackson County.

On Monday, December 31, 2012, a drop box for property tax payments will be located at the west door of the Jackson County Courthouse in Kansas City (415 E. 12th Street) and at the front door of the Jackson County Courthouse Annex in Independence (308 W. Kansas). Both drop boxes will close at midnight. Do not place cash in either drop box.

What happens if I miss or am late with my payment?  

Failure to pay any installment in the time and manner provided shall cause a senior to be removed from the quad payment program and will result in interest and penalties being charged retroactively back to the first day of January of the year following the initial billing of the real estate taxes as if the senior had never been in the quad pay program and had simply paid late on their taxes.

Once removed from the quad pay program for failure to make a timely quad installment payment, a senior taxpayer will not be allowed to rejoin the quad pay plan for the purpose of completing the installments still due for the most recent tax year.  However, any eligible senior will be allowed to rejoin the quad installment plan for future tax years after completing a new senior quad pay application as long as all prior year taxes are paid and not delinquent.
