Role of Appraiser's Office

The Appraiser's Office does not set taxes. The amount of taxes you pay depends on the budgets set by your governing bodies - such as the state, county, cities and school districts.

The County Appraiser is responsible for discovering, listing and valuing all taxable property within the County and provides for equalization of all such properties to ensure fair and equitable taxation. Learn more about what the Appraiser's Office does, and does not, do in this short video.

About the Johnson County Appraiser's Office

How do I know if a county appraiser is in my area or at my home?

APR County Car Signage

County appraisers are easily identified. Most appraisers drive county vehicles that are clearly marked Johnson County Appraiser’s Office on the sides. These vehicles are also marked on the back with the county web address (

Sometimes appraisers must drive their personal vehicles. If this is the case the appraiser will be identifiable by their shirt & will have their Appraiser’s Office badge with them.

If there is an opportunity to speak with a county appraiser, they can be asked to present their Appraiser’s Office badge. The badge will state Appraiser’s Office and have the name and position of the appraiser. To obtain more information please call our customer service line 913-715-9000.
