Great News About Payment Under Protest Appeal Applications!
November 16, 2017

The payment under protest (PUP) appeal application has not been updated since 2008. Our office worked on updating the PUP appeal application to have an option for telephone hearings added. The PUP application updated by our office was submitted to the Kansas Board of Tax Appeals with the new option, and was approved! Telephone hearings are a more convenient way our office can serve the public.

When it comes to informal hearings also referred to as equalization hearings, and PUP hearings property owners have three choices as to how they appeal. The first option is to have an in person hearing. The property owner or their representative comes to our office to meet with an appraiser at a scheduled date and time. The second option is to have a telephone hearing. An appraiser calls the property owner or representative at a scheduled date and time. The third option is a hearing based on evidence. With this option a property owner or their representative mails, drops off, or emails their evidence to our office to be reviewed by an appraiser.

Recertification of the Prestigious IAAO Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration Award!
November 6, 2017

Please click this link to access the letter from the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) regarding the award our office received!

For a little background on the Excellence in Assessment Administration and award; the Excellence in Assessment Administration is a very detailed report about the assessment practices of an Appraiser’s Office. For the 2017 year our office researched and reported on the assessment practices in the areas of our Computerized Mapping Systems, Data Collection, Sales Data, Ratio Studies, Stratification, and Defense of Values. In addition to the very specific information in these areas a summary must be given on the particular Appraiser’s Office being evaluated. This summary includes appraisal hours of training and ongoing education, the main industry of the jurisdiction, size of the jurisdiction, and more. Once all of this information is collected it is turned over to the IAAO for grading, evaluation, and accuracy. If the information provided in the detailed report passes the grading by the IAAO an award is presented.
