Stipulations of value shall be submitted for the Court's approval by means of an agreed order executed by the parties. Agreed orders shall be substantially similar to the Court's form order titled Agreed Order of Stipulation.
Parties shall not file with the Court stipulation agreements or other contractual instruments. A fully executed Agreed Order of Stipulation will serve the dual purpose of a stipulation of value and a terminating order.
The Court will presume that all stipulations of value are entered into between the parties after full consideration of the pertinent facts and governing law, including without limitation the county appraiser's duties under K.S.A. 79-1426.
The parties are expected to submit a fully executed Agreed Order of Stipulation within 30 days of the time the parties notify the Court of a pending stipulation. If the agreed order is not received within that period, the Court will initiate default proceedings pursuant to K.S.A. 77-520.
An attorney not admitted to practice law in the State of Kansas may act as counsel pro hac vice before the Court of Tax Appeals, provided certain conditions for admission are met. For details about eligibility and the application process, see Rule 116 of the Supreme Court of the State of Kansas.
Please note that there is a non-refundable fee of $100 for all pro hac vice applications. This fee is authorized pursuant to Kansas Supreme Court Rule 116(d). The application fee shall accompany the motion and verified application in each case and shall be made payable to the Kansas Court of Tax Appeals.
Any case or matter scheduled on the Court's calendar may be continued by the Court only upon a written motion filed no fewer than 30 days before the date of the scheduled hearing. This 30-day period may be waived by the Court at its discretion upon a showing of good cause.
Prior to filing a motion for continuance with the Court, the moving party shall consult with all other parties and shall state in the motion the position of the other parties with respect to the proposed continuance. Additionally, the motion must state the reason for the requested continuance. Motions for continuance will be granted only in exceptional circumstances. Conflicting engagements of counsel normally will not be considered a proper ground for continuance.
Parties and counsel should not call or email Court staff to request a continuance or to attempt to reschedule a matter for hearing. All continuance requests must be filed in writing as set forth above. The Court will initiate any necessary rescheduling after the motion for continuance is decided.
