This public information is furnished as a public service. The information must be accepted and used by the recipient with the understanding that the data was developed and collected for the purpose of developing property valuations, using the criteria of fair market value, as required by the State of Kansas. The appraised values are updated each year in November after the current tax year is calculated. The tax information provided is based on the current assessed value. The Appraiser's Office and Treasurer's Office assume no liability whatsoever associated with the use or misuse of such data, and disclaims any representation or warranty as to the accuracy of the data.

Kansas Open Records Act
Payment Under Protest

Protest forms may be filed if a meeting has not been held regarding the valuation of the property for the same tax year.

Complete and submit the Payment Under Protest form online, by mail or in-person with the County Treasurer's Office after November 1st and on or before December 20th with payment. (If at least one-half (1/2) of the taxes are paid by an escrow agent, a protest of the taxes must be filed no later than the following January 31.) If taxes are paid after these deadlines, any protest of the taxes must be filed at the time the taxes are paid.

The County Appraiser will schedule an informal meeting after the County Treasurer forwards the Payment Under Protest form with paid receipt to their office.

If filing a protest on the basis of an illegal tax levy, an Appendix must be completed and attached to the protest form. Those protest forms will be mailed by the Treasurer to the State Board of Tax Appeals. No informal hearing will be held with the Appraiser in the case of an illegal tax levy protest.

If the Payment Under Protest appeal is successful and if taxes are reduced after the adjustment is made, the tax reduction will appear on the second half tax amount due or, if taxes are paid in full, a refund will be issued.

Please read and follow the instructions carefully for a successful appeal. NOTE: If the protest form is received in the Treasurer's office unsigned, the protest will be considered invalid and will be returned. Delays may jeopardize the chances for a hearing.
