Appraiser’s Office to Distribute Personal Property Rendition Mailings
December 31, 2019

The Johnson County Appraiser’s Office will mail approximately 19,000 rendition forms to Johnson County property owners, businesses, and oil and gas accounts on Dec. 31. Rendition forms are used to value taxable personal property.

 According to Kansas Statute K.S.A. 79-303:  Property owners are required by law to provide a listing of tangible personal property that is owned or leased, as of the first day of January.

Examples of commercial personal property that must be reported include manufacturing equipment, computers, telephone systems, copy machines, shelving and racks, and plant machinery. Examples of individual personal property include recreational vehicles, boats, motors, trailers, heavy trucks, mobile homes, off-road vehicles, four-wheelers and aircraft, etc.

 The filing requirement does not apply to the following:

  • Motor vehicles that are taxed at the time of licensing.
  • Commercial equipment that cost $1,500 or less.
  • Commercial equipment purchased after June 30, 2006.

Mar. 15, 2020 is the deadline for Johnson County personal property owners to return renditions to the Johnson County Appraiser’s Office. Late filing penalties will apply to renditions received after Mar. 15.

Property owners who do not receive a rendition form, or have questions are advised to contact the Appraiser’s Office at 913-715-9000.

DOR (Declaration of Representative)
December 18, 2019

Soon our office will be in our hearing season for payment under protests and informal appeals! 

A policy that all property owners and anyone who may be representing a property owner should be aware of is the enforcement of completely and correctly filling out a DOR. The DOR (declaration of representative) must accompany the appeal application for payment under protest and informals.  

The DOR applies in situations where the property owner is not appealing their property, but having a family member, neighbor, tax representative, accountant, or so on appeal in their place.

There must be a clear indication of who is appealing on behalf of the property owner including whether the owner is an individual or an organization.

A DOR can found on our website on the General Information tab under Forms.
