Sample Property Tax Report for a Kansas property


The Douglas County Assessor values all taxable real estate in the county. Three appraisal methods may be used: cost, sales comparison, and/or income. By law, residential and commercial properties must be valued at between 92% and 100% percent of market value.

Market Value

Market value is the amount for which a property would sell in a competitive and open market, presuming that both buyer and seller are knowledgeable about the sale, allow sufficient time for it, and are not affected by undue pressures (e.g. foreclosures and bankruptcy).

Land value $49,040
Building value + $199,170
Market value = $248,210
Assessed Value

Assessed value in Douglas County is usually calculated by multiplying market value by the county's appropriate assessment ratio. Real property is classified into subclasses, which determine which ratio is used: 11.5% for residential, 25% for commercial and industrial, 30% for agricultural and 12% for vacant.

Land assessed value $5,640
Building assessed value + $22,905
Assessed value = $28,545
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Taxable value represents the assessed value less any tax exemptions that apply. Several exemptions like homestead refund and tax relief for seniors are available in the State of Kansas that may lower the property's tax bill.

We have no information about whether any exemptions currently apply to this property. Therefore, the taxable value will be equal to the assessed value.

Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the property's taxable value by all the millage rates applicable to it and is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay. The rates are expressed as millages (i.e the actual rates multiplied by 1000).
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs or to non-ad valorem taxes.

Tax description Assessed value Tax rate Tax amount
Property tax $28,545 * 126.4820‰ = $3,610.43
