Appraiser's Office

Appraiser

 

 Mission Statement

To provide uniform, fair and equitable values among all classes of property by maintaining the highest standards in appraisal practices and law, guided by the goals of quality customer service to the public, while providing a work environment that encourages staff's professional and personal growth.

Vision Statement

To be a recognized leader for providing fair and equitable mass appraisals of both real and personal property, along with providing accurate and comprehensive information to the citizens and taxpayers of Wyandotte County in a preeminently accountable, effective and efficient manner.

The Appraiser's Office discovers, inspects, evaluates and assigns a market or appraised value and classification to all taxable and exempt property in the County and otherwise implements all State laws, including administrative rules and regulations set by the Kansas Department of Revenue, Property Valuation Division. The resulting taxable assessed values become the total base of the County. The Appraiser's Office defends those values when they are appealed and will recommend adjustment, if necessary. The County Appraiser also administers all matters relating to the exemption of property and the filing of tax grievances by taxpayers.
