The Residential City Property Tax Rebate Program helps reduce the tax burden on income-qualified Merriam Households by returning the city portion of property taxes that are collected. This is a city-funded project and is designed to assist residents whose 2022 income falls within the guideline for Low Income as established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
In order to be eligible for the Residential City Property Tax Rebate Program your Household (all persons living at the residence) must meet the following criteria:
Household members must provide their 2022 Federal Tax return as proof of income. For Household members that are not required to file a Federal Income Tax return, proof of social security, veteran, or other benefit payments will be accepted.
