The Role of the Butler County Appraiser
The County Appraiser is an appointed position with the responsibility to discover, list, appraise, and maintain records of the data relating to all taxable and exempt real and personal property within Butler County.

The County Appraiser and his or her staff is responsible for the discovery, listing, and the uniform and equitable appraisal of all taxable and exempt real and personal property in compliance with the constitution and statutes of the State of Kansas for tax purposes.

Real property and personal property is appraised as of January 1 every year. Partially complete new construction is appraised based upon its percentage of completion as of January 1. Market value (what a willing buyer and willing seller would agree to) is the basis of value for most real property except agricultural land. Agricultural land is appraised on the basis of its productivity and a formula determined by Kansas Constitution, statutes, and state guidelines. Most personal property (except business, machinery equipment, RVs, etc.) is also appraised at market value.
