AARP Wyoming will start calling out to members around 2:45 p.m. on April 18. If you do not receive a call and wish to take part in the TeleTown Hall, you can call 1-855-274-1448 or visit AARP Wyoming’s Facebook page and listen to the live stream at:


During the 2023 Legislative Session, the Wyoming Legislature voted to allow those whose household income does not exceed 125% of their county or the statewide median income to apply a refund of up to 75%, with some limitations, of their 2022 Property Tax Bill.


According to Department of Revenue Director Brenda Henson, the application for property tax refunds went live on April 1 and can be procured by calling The State Revenue Department office at 307-777-7320, going online to, or from your local county treasurer's office. The application deadline for tax year 2022 refunds is June 5.


The Property Tax Refund program requires taxpayers to complete an application certifying they  own their home; have been a Wyoming resident for the past five years; provide proof that 2022 property taxes have been paid in full; they had household income in 2022 equal to or less than 125% of the median household income for the county in which you reside or the statewide median income, whichever is greater.


Other requirements include personal assets not exceeding $150,000 per adult household member. In other words, if you own other real estate, bank accounts, and investments, they cannot have value in excess of $150,000 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, cash value of life insurance policies, Medical Savings, etc.). If your total property tax bill exceeds more than 10% of your total household income, then this asset limit would not apply.

Native plants that do well in Wyoming gardens

Consider the Indian Paintbrush. This and other regional wild-flowers. For one thing, they don’t require fertilizers and require fewer pesticides since they have natural resilience to garden pests in the region, in turn promoting beneficial populations like butterflies and hummingbirds. They also require less water because they’ve adapted to rely on rainwater.
