Effective July 1, 2015 there is a law change regarding Kansas Covered Farm Vehicles
Real Estate and Personal Property taxes are mailed out in November. The first half is due December 20th. If the first half is not paid by December 20th, it begins to accrue interest. If the first half is paid by December 20, the last half is due May 10th of the following year.
Real Estate Taxes:
After December 20 and until May 10, the first half payment plus interest can be paid. If not paid by May 10, the full tax plus interest must be paid. There is no longer the option of paying the first half. If taxes are due and unpaid for three years, the property is subject to a tax foreclosure suit by the County. The property can be sold at public auction. Anyone that has delinquent real estate taxes in the county cannot bid at these auctions.
Personal Property Taxes:
After December 20, the full amount of personal property taxes is due plus interest. Full unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for collection in March. If the first half taxes are paid in December, the second half is due May 10th. Second half unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for collection in June.
