An appraisal is the method established by the Kansas statute to determine a property owner’s share of taxes that support schools, roads, health and human services, parks, police and fire.
The county appraiser is required to visit your property at least once every six years. First, the appraiser will attempt to interview the property owner. Then an exterior inspection is completed. The appraiser will look for changes such as additions, deck constructions, verify dimensions, check for structural damage and determine the property’s general condition. Next, the appraiser uses computer-generated data to analyze the property characteristics. Sales data is also reviewed and analyzed.
If you believe your appraisal is inaccurate you have the opportunity to appeal the value. Instructions of the appeal process are provided on the back of the Valuation Notice you received in the mail.
