Kansas Property Tax Payment

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why is another organization collecting property taxes for my county?

The Information Network of Kansas (INK) is acting as an agent of your county. INK will collect payment and demographic information for the taxes before passing that along to the county.

2. Is the application secure?

INK has dealt in online government transactions since 1992. In fact, INK created e-government. Since our inception, we have handled millions of dollars worth of e-government transactions.

3. Can others access my property tax records?

According to Kansas law, all property tax records are open public information. The intent of this online tax payment system is for tax payments. It is not intended to disclose property tax records. Anyone wanting that information will need to request it in person or writing from his or her local county treasurer's office.

4. Can I pay delinquent taxes online?

No. Contact your local county treasurer's office for a payoff amount, which would need to be remitted in person or by mail.

5. Are offline payments reflected in this application?

Your balance may not reflect any recent payments that may have been made offline or through any other financial institution. Contact your local county treasurer's office if you have any further questions about your balance or payment information.

6. Who can use the online tax payment application?

There are some cases where individuals are not eligible to use the online tax payment process at this time. Review the following exceptions before proceeding:

  1. Not all counties offer online tax payments.
  2. Accounts with a prior tax year delinquency are ineligible.
  3. Accounts that are in dispute or protest are ineligible.
  4. In the case of international payments, funds must be drawn on a United States bank account.

Contact your county treasurer's office for more information.

7. How can I protest property taxes?

Tell me more about protesting taxes.

8. Why is the Kansas.gov Purchase Price higher than the amount on my property tax statement?

This online service is provided by Kansas.gov, a third-party working under a contract awarded and administered by the Information Network of Kansas (INK). The online price of items or services purchased through Kansas.gov, the state's official web portal, include funds used to develop, maintain, enhance, and expand the service offerings of the state's portal.

9. Why does my county not appear in the list under "Select Your County"?

If your county is participating (see #10 below) but not in the selection list, the county has yet to submit the current tax season data. Contact your county treasurer's office for more information or check back later.
