Appraisal Office



Annual Property Inspection underway

The Finney County Appraiser's Office is mandated by K.S.A. 79-1476 to reinspect all real property every six years. The purpose of this inspection is to verify that our data is current and represents the property accurately. The Appraiser's Office physically inspects approximately 17% of the real property located in Finney County, Kansas each year.  

Other routine work will continue throughout Finney County, such as the review of recent sale properties and parcels with building permits.

Finney County Appraiser's Office personnel can be identified by vehicles marked with the Finney County logo and carry Finney County photo identification badges. Field appraisers will slowly drive through the neighborhoods staying in the vehicles unless changes to properties are observed.

Property owners with questions may contact the Finney County Appraisal Office at 620-272-3517.

Real Estate Appraisers

An appraisal is a method established by Kansas statute to determine a property owner's share of taxes that support schools, roads, health and human service programs, parks, and police and fire protection. The County Appraiser is responsible for discovering, listing, and uniformly valuing property. 

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

Personal Property Appraisers
