Personal property taxes are assessed on personal property owned as of January 1st. Types of personal property assessed include:
Business Machinery and Equipment
If personal property is sold after January 1, the taxpayer is still responsible for the taxes in most cases. You will need to contact the Appraiser's Office about any proration of taxes and to insure the property is removed from the tax roll for the next year.
Taxpayers have the option of paying personal property taxes in two halves. The first half is due by December 20, and the second half is due by May 10. If the first half personal property taxes are not paid by December 20, then the taxes become due in full.
Taxes must be received in our office or postmarked by December 20 and May 10 to avoid interest. No second half notices will be mailed.
Any taxpayer with delinquent personal property taxes will not be able to renew any motor vehicles.
Forms of payment accepted are cash, check, or credit/debit card. If paying by credit or debit card there is a convenience fee associated with the payment based on the amount being charged. You may also pay taxes online using one of 2 credit card services: Access Kansas and Official Payments. See our Online Payments section for limitations.
