Your Sedgwick County Tax Bill

If you own a home, land, or business in Sedgwick County, you receive a property tax bill from the Treasurer.  You may pay in full in December or make half-payments in December and May.  Your tax bill may also be paid as part of your mortgage payment each month.

Just because you pay your property taxes to Sedgwick County does not mean Sedgwick County keeps all that money.  Instead, only about 25 cents out of every dollar goes to fund County services.  The remainder goes to the state, cities, school districts, townships or other special districts based on your property address.

To help you understand more about how your property taxes are used, we have developed a quick way for you to see where the dollars go to support different government jurisdictions and how the Sedgwick County portion is used for County services.  On the “My Local Taxes” application, you will find two sources of information: your "Total Taxes by Jurisdiction" and your "Sedgwick County Taxes at Work".  CLICK HERE to go to the “My Local Taxes” application to get your personalized breakdown.  All you need is your property address to proceed.
