ILLEGAL MILL LEVY INSTRUCTIONS
You may protest your taxes only if you did not file an equalization appeal on the valuation of the same property for the same tax year. If you have protested your first half payment of taxes, you may not protest your second half payment. Complete the tax protest form and file a copy with the County Treasurer's Office on or before December 20. (If at least one-half (1/2) of the taxes are paid by an escrow agent, a protest of the taxes must be filed no later than the following January 31.) If taxes are paid after these deadlines, any protest of the taxes must be filed at the time the taxes are paid. All single-family residential property appeals are required to be filed with the Small Claims and Expedited Hearings Division (referred to as "Small Claims"), unless the property is devoted to agricultural use. Owners of other types of property that meet certain statutory requirements may choose to file with the Small Claims Division. You may elect to file your appeal with the Small Claims Division only if the property is valued by the County less than $2,000,000 and is not classified as agricultural use. The County Treasurer will forward the appeal directly to the Court of Tax Appeals. No informal hearing will be scheduled with the County Appraiser. Enclose any applicable filing fee(s) pursuant to K.A.R. 94-2-21. Checks or money orders should be made payable to the Court of Tax Appeals. For information regarding fees with the Court of Tax Appeals, visit www.kansas.gov/cota/ or contact the Court at (785) 296-2388. The County Appraiser's office also has fee schedules available.
This form along with the applicable filing fee is to be filed with the County Treasurer. The County Treasurer will forward the application to the Court of Tax Appeals.
