JOHNSON COUNTY, KAN. –  A countywide property-imaging project kicks off in Johnson County this month (January 2016). The Johnson County Appraiser’s Office has contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc. to take high-resolution street level photos of the exterior of every property in the county. The county uses these photos to create land record information used in the appraisal process. Kansas law requires counties to update property information every six years in an effort to maintain accurate data on every parcel in the county.

“Correct up-to-date property information is crucial to ensuring fair and equitable property values as well as making the appraisal process more efficient,” said Paul Welcome, Johnson County Appraiser. “This project will provide high-quality photos of every house, commercial building, gazebo…every structure with value…on the county’s 187,000 parcels of land.”

Tyler Technologies field staff will photograph properties from customized white vans that will be clearly marked with signs indicating they are conducting an imaging and address verification project for the county. All personnel assigned to this project will have photo identification badges and will take photographs from public right-of-way whenever possible.

The imaging crews are expected to be in the area for several months.  During that time they will be in constant communication with the Appraiser’s Office. Each week, the Appraiser’s Office will post the crew’s schedule at www.jocogov.org/countypropertyphotoproject.

Commercial Real Estate Income and Expense Questionnaires
August 21, 2015

The Johnson County Appraiser's office has recently mailed out Income and Expense Questionnaires to commercial real estate property owners. Kansas law requires the Johnson County Appraiser's office to annually determine the fair market value of real estate, including commercial real estate. To ensure the County works with the most current market conditions, we need to obtain the best and most current financial information available. We ask your assistance in completing and returning the Income and Expense Questionnaire enclosed in the mailing.

The questionnaire identifies information the county appraiser believes useful in estimating the fair market value of your property. We ask that the forms be returned by September 30, 2015. Please be assured the office will take all reasonable measures to comply with Kansas law in maintaining the confidentiality of any financial information submitted in response to this request.

Please feel free to submit the last 2 complete years' income and expense statements and a current rent roll for the property in lieu of filling out the enclosed form.

If you have any questions regarding this questionnaire, please call the commercial appraiser notated your form.


Thank you,

Johnson County Kansas Appraiser's Office Commercial Real Estate Department
