Real estate taxes are calculated using the appraiser's valuation of the property as of January 1 and the mill levy for the taxing unit associated with the property. The mill levies are finalized in late October and tax information is available around mid-November.
Tax bills are usually mailed out by mid-November. If you do not receive a tax statement by December 1, please contact our office.
Real estate taxes are paid in arrears with the first half due by December 20, and the second half due by May 10 of the following year. Taxes must be received in our office or postmarked by these dates to avoid interest. No second half notices will be mailed.
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 two credit card services: Access Kansas and Official Payments. See our Online Payments section for limitations and information.
