PROPERTY REVIEWS ARE UNDER WAY
Per Kansas statute (K.S.A. 79-1476), the County Appraiser’s Office is required to review all parcels within the County on a six-year cycle by conducting physical inspections or by utilizing aerial imagery. In addition to cycle inspections, staff will also be out on building permits and sales that have occurred. The appraisers will be updating property photos, property characteristic data, taking exterior measurements of all structures, and interviewing property owners/tenants. This is not a re-appraisal. In Kansas, properties are re-appraised annually and as of January 1st. The appraiser at the property will not know what the value will be or what the taxes will be.
Starting in late June, expect to see majority of the appraisal staff out in the Argentine and Amourdale areas. They may be on foot or in marked Unified Government vehicles. All appraisers will wear photo ID badges and embroidered gray polos.
Unfortunately notifying a taxpayer of when an appraiser may be on their property is not feasible at this time. Staffing, weather, contact information changes, number of parcels, time needed at each property, and associated costs limit specific date and time scheduling of our on-site inspections.
