Real estate, real property or realty are all terms for the combination of land and improvements. The State of Kansas requires an appraisal of property value and establishes the rules for those appraisals

All persons owning or holding real property or personal property shall be liable for taxes, with exemptions for certain properties, such as those for charitable, educational and religious purposes. All taxable real and personal property within the UG is assessed annually by the county appraiser.

Tax rate is measured in mills. A mill is one dollar in tax for every $1,000 in assessed property value. In Kansas, various types of property are assessed at different rates of their fair market value. Residential property is assessed at 11.5% of fair market value. So, a house which sells for $100,000 would be assessed for tax purposes at $11,500. Take the $11,500 times the amount of the mill levy to calculate how much tax is owed. If the mill levy is 70, for example, the tax owed would be $805.
