TOPEKA- Agricultural land values in 66 counties in Kansas may decrease slightly from property valuations recently sent out, depending on the property's soil type.
Valuations on some properties, for tax year 2016, could decrease by as much as $3 an acre. Because this is a decrease in property value, counties are not required to send out a second notice.
While valuation notices are sent out in March, tax bills have not yet been mailed to property owners. The changes will be reflected in the 2016 tax bills.
There was a clerical error in the calculation provided to the state Property Valuation Division to determine some valuations which caused the mistake.
Property owners with questions about their agricultural land value should contact their local county appraiser's office.
