The state of Kansas Division of Property Valuation approved Sedgwick County’s request to use an alternative method for the annual property valuation notification.
The Sedgwick County Appraiser’s Office request was approved to only mail valuation notices to owners of properties that experienced a change in value or classification from 2012 to 2013. Property owners who did not receive a notice in the mail may view the notice and appraisal information for their properties online. Property owners also may print their notice from the website, which will include appeal information. This alternative method of notification in no way changes a property owner’s right to appeal their valuation or classification.
Approximately 85,000 real property value notices were mailed for 2013, which is about 40 percent of the 220,000 properties in Sedgwick County. This change to mailing practices resulted in a one year savings of approximately $40,000.
The Sedgwick County Appraiser’s Office is conducting on-site inspections from building permits and appeals. Appraisers review properties for accuracy of characteristic data and update records if necessary.
Appraisers can be identified with Sedgwick County photo identification badges. Property owners with questions may contact the Sedgwick County Call Center at 660-9250.
