Appraiser's Office Annual Property Re-inspections
The Wyandotte County Appraiser’s Office personnel will begin its annual re-inspection of real estate properties beginning the week of June 7th, 2021. This process will continue throughout the summer and into the fall.
Kansas counties are on a six-year cycle of re-inspecting all parcels within the county. This work is required by Kansas State law, K.S.A. 79-1476.
Wyandotte County Appraiser’s Office personnel will be working in teams; reinspection areas are identified below. They will be driving vehicles, as well as wearing badges and apparel identified with the Unified Government logo. Staff will be following current Unified Government COVID-19 safety protocols while conducting onsite inspections. Staff will be checking the listings, measurements, and characteristics of all buildings on each property visited. The listings of vacant land will also be reviewed. They will also interview the property owner or resident, if available. If no one is home, staff will proceed with collecting exterior data and a yellow questionnaire card will be left pertaining to information about the house. If you find one of these cards left at the door, please answer the questions and return it to the County Appraiser’s Office as directed.
This reinspection work is in addition to other routine work such as the review of recent sale properties, parcels having new construction, torn down or destroyed buildings, as well as neighborhood reviews throughout the entire county.
We appreciate the cooperation of the residents as we proceed with our work. If any property owner has questions or wishes to inquire about the inventory of their property, they may contact the County Appraiser’s Office at (913) 573-8400

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.
