TAX ROLL CORRECTIONS
All tax bill corrections are issued by the Washington County Appraiser. The County Treasurer’s office receives this information and issues a corrected real estate or personal property tax statement. Reductions will be reflected on the second half payment if taxes are not paid in full. Fully paid taxes with a reduction will create an overage resulting in a refund.
A tax may be protested if you have not met with the County Appraiser in regard to the valuation of your property for the current tax year. Protest forms are available from the County Treasurer’s office or a form can be printed from the Kansas Board of Tax Appeals web site: Board of Tax Appeal
