Personal Property Taxes
General Information
Personal Property taxes are assessed on personal property owned as of January 1. Types of personal property assessed includes:
  • Business machinery and equipment
  • Heavy trucks
  • Mobile homes
  • Mopeds / motorbikes
  • Trailers
  • Watercrafts

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.

Payment Options
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 by December 20 and May 10 to avoid interest. No second half notices are sent.

Any taxpayer with delinquent personal property taxes will not be able to tag, title, or renew any motor vehicles.

Forms of payment accepted are cash, check, or credit card. If paying by credit card there is a convenience fee associated with the payment based on the amount being charged. You may also pay current taxes online using the credit card service Access Kansas. See our Online Resources for more information.

Delinquent Personal Property Taxes
Personal Property taxes become due in full if the first half is not paid by December 20. Interest accrues daily on the full amount until paid. Delinquent tax notices for unpaid first half taxes are mailed out in February and a treasurer fee is assessed to the outstanding taxes and accrued interest. If the taxes are not paid within 14 days of receipt of the notice then sheriff warrants are issued.

Delinquent tax notices for unpaid second half taxes are mailed out in June and a treasurer fee is assessed to the outstanding taxes and accrued interest. If the taxes are not paid within 14 days of receipt of the notice then sheriff warrants are issued. Delinquent Tax Listings are printed in the newspaper and on the county website by October 10. Once the delinquent taxes are listed in the newspaper a publication fee is due in addition to the outstanding taxes, treasurer fee, and accrued interest.

All unpaid personal property tax warrants are turned over to the District Court on October 1 and a court fee becomes due in addition to the outstanding taxes, treasurer fee, publication fee, and accrued interest.
