Wildfire Disaster- Property Tax Relief:
According to KSA 79-1613, the County Commission may issue an abatement of all or partial property taxes on dwellings where damage occurred during a natural disaster and would exceed more than 50% of the market value of the dwelling. The Appraiser’s office will determine if the damage to the property meets the requirements set by KSA 79-1613 and will then send the application to the Reno County Commission for approval. Please fill out the online application here: https://www.renogov.org/forms.aspx?FID=70 or contact the Reno County Appraiser's Office at 620-694-2915.
The county appraiser is a public servant, working for the good of the taxpayers to place fair and equitable values on real and personal property in accordance with state law. The appraiser’s office is responsible for discovering, listing, and valuing all real and tangible property within their jurisdiction. The appraiser’s office values property based on market conditions per state statutes. However, the appraiser's office does not create value. People determine value by their transactions in the marketplace. The appraiser's office simply has the legal responsibility to analyze those transactions and appraise individual properties based upon what is happening on the open market. Please contact our office with any questions you may have about your property.
The mission of the Office of the Appraiser is to provide professional, economical, accurate, and ethical administration of the real and personal property tax roll for the citizens of Reno County, setting values that meet compliance standards established by the State of Kansas in accordance with state statutes.
