Rendition forms due March 15

In late December, the Johnson County Appraiser’s Office mailed approximately 17,000 rendition forms to Johnson County property owners, businesses and oil and gas accounts. Rendition forms are used to value taxable personal property. The forms are due March 15.  

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 costs $1,500 or less 
  • Commercial equipment purchased after June 30, 2006 

March 15 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 March 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.
