Real Estate Taxes

General Information



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 October and tax information is available in the beginning of November.

Payment Information

Tax statements are mailed late November. If you do not receive a tax statement by December 1, please contact our office at (316) 322-4210.

Tax payments must be received in our office by December 20 and May 10 to avoid interest. No second half notices are sent. You may sign up in our Notify Me section to receive email or text message reminders of payment due dates.

Forms of payment accepted in the office are cash, check, or credit/debit card. If paying by credit/debit card there is a convenience fee retained by the card processing company associated with the payment based on a percentage of the amount being charged.

Online Tax Payments



Current year taxes may be paid by E-Check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express through the Access Kansas website. This service is available mid November through December 20 and then again in January through May 10. There is a transaction fee of $2.00 per transaction if taxes are being paid by E-Check. There is a 2.5%convenience fee based on the amount being charged retained by the credit card processing company if any card is used.


Online Property Tax Search


Taxpayers can look up current year and prior year real estate tax information by using the Online Property Tax Search with the following information:
  • Owner Name
  • Address
  • Taxing Unit and Parcel ID

Due to the volume of payments received there is some lag time in the processing of payments. Please call the Treasurer's Office if you have questions as to whether a tax is paid.

The website does not provide accurate interest and penalties on delinquent taxes. Please call the Treasurer's Office at (316) 322-4210 to obtain payoff information.

Mortgage Company Payments



Some tax payers have their real estate taxes paid by a mortgage company. For these taxpayers, the original tax statement is mailed to the mortgage company and duplicate copy of the statement is mailed to the taxpayer. If you receive a tax statement showing an amount due on the stubs we ask that you contact your mortgage company and forward the statement to them for payment. If you receive a duplicate tax statement showing no amounts due on the stub and you no longer have an escrow account with a mortgage company please contact our office.

Delinquent Real Estate Taxes



Tax payments must be received in our office by December 20 and May 10 to avoid interest. No second half notices are sent. You may sign up in our Notify Me section to receive email or text message reminders of payment due dates.

Delinquent Tax Listings are printed in the newspaper and on the county website beginning in August. Once the delinquent taxes are listed in the newspaper a publication fee is due in addition to the outstanding taxes and accrued interest.

Delinquent real estate goes into redemption on the first Tuesday in September. If the taxes remain unpaid three years after that redemption date, the property becomes eligible for a tax foreclosure sale. The property is sold at a public auction once due process has been served.
