How do I protest my property tax?
In February or March, you receive a validation notice on your real estate. If you are unhappy with the value, fill out the appeal form on the back of the notice and turn it in to the appraiser's office by April 15th. You will in turn have a hearing with the Appraiser's Office. If you are not happy with the results of that hearing, fill out the back of your decision letter and turn it in to the Appraiser's Office within 18 days of the date on the letter. You will then be scheduled for a hearing with the Hearing Officer Panel. If you are unhappy with that hearing, you can appeal to the Kansas Board of Tax Appeals. It is also possible to "pay under protest," or to appeal your property tax bill when you pay it in the treasurer's office. That phase of the appeal process is not a function of the Clerk's Office.
