Challenge Home Value
There are two ways to challenge the value of your home:
- You may appeal the “Notice of Value” of your home by contacting the County Appraiser’s Office by phone or in writing within 30 days after receiving your “Notice of Value”.
- You may fill out a “payment under protest” form with the County Treasurer at the time you pay your taxes. If an escrow or tax service agent pays your property taxes, then protest no later than January 31st.
You cannot appeal using both methods for the same property in the same tax year. So, if you start to appeal your “Notice of Value,” be sure that you follow through with the appeal. You will not be allowed to “pay under protest” later. K.S.A 79-2005.
Unsatisfied with Your Results
If you are not satisfied with the results of your appeal at the county level, the next step in the appeals process is to take your case to the Kansas Court of Tax Appeals. For more information on appeals, please contact your local County Appraiser’s Office.
