SALINE COUNTY APPRAISERS OFFICE
The County Appraiser and his or her staff is responsible for the discovery, listing, and the uniform and equitable appraisal of all taxable and exempt real and personal property in compliance with the constitution and statutes of the State of Kansas for tax purposes. Property subject to taxation is divided into two principle classes: Real Property and Personal Property.
Each year the Appraiser reviews recent real estate sales and considers local economic conditions in order to maintain the most current value of the property in the county. The Appraiser's goal is to equalize property values, which will create fair distribution of the taxes that pay for many community services.
Appraisers do not create value. People determine value by their transactions in the market place. The appraiser simply has the legal responsibility to analyze those transactions and appraise individual properties based on what is happening in the market place.
The Appraisal Process
NOTICE: From approximately June 1 through August 31, 2020, the County Appraiser's office will have staff viewing and taking photos of properties. The appraisers will be viewing properties from their vehicle (or possibly the sidewalk) and will not need to come onto a property during this time period. Each of these appraisers will be wearing easily identifiable clothing and will have proper identification with them.
