Change of Valuation Notice
Top of page.Property Tax Calculation.Your property taxes are determined by multiplying the actual value times the assessment rate times the mill levy. The assessment rate on residential properties is 11.5%. The assessment rate for commercial and industrial purposes is 25%. The assessment rate is fixed by law and is the same statewide.Sample Calculation:.Let's assume the market value of your home has been determined to be $60,000, and the statewide residential assessment rate is 11.5%. This would mean that the assessed value of your home would be $6,900 ($60,00 times .115 = $6,900). Primary sources for this information are real property deeds, subdivision maps, building permits, local building contractors, and office personnel who conduct on-site inspections to gather land and building characteristics. This information is stored by the County Appraiser, updated, and maintained for current and future use in the assessment process.Appraisal - Estimating Value.An estimate of value is accomplished by an appraisal. The County Appraiser is required to equitably value all property in the county according to current Kansas law. The actual value assigned to residential properties is based on market value as of January 1 of the current year. To determine the market value, the Appraiser studies sales of properties that occurred during the three previous years. Those sales indicate the market conditions in various parts of Pratt County and the market value of specific types of properties. For most nonresidential properties, comparable sales information, construction costs, depreciation, and the income approach to value are considered. Top of page.Changes Affecting Property Values.A property's value may alter over time due to physical changes such as an addition or a garage, family room, bedroom, or extensive remodeling and modernization. also, property values may fluctuate due to the local economy. The economy of the entire community may affect the market value of your property negatively or positively.Changes made to maintain your property's current value such as painting your home, replacing the roof, replacing the hot water heater, or making repairs would not necessarily increase the value of the property. However, if these tasks were not performed, the condition of the home would deteriorate, which could cause the market value to decrease.

Top of page.The Assessment Process.The assessment process involves setting standards for fair and equitable values, discovering and listing information about properties, and determining property values. It also involves analyzing the values to ensure that they meet the standards of fair assessment, and certifying the total valuation of the County to the County Clerk.Information Collection:.The first step in the assessment process is to gather information on ownership, location, type of use, sales, building measurement, construction type, construction costs, and rental income. The Taxpayer.As a property owner and taxpayer, you have specific rights and responsibilities in the assessment process. You have the right to examine the Appraiser's property records and verify that the property you own is listed and described correctly on the tax records. If you disagree with your property value, you may file an appeal with the County Appraiser. You have the responsibility to provide accurate information to the Appraiser about property you own and to attend and participate in budget hearings held by school, county, cities, and special districts which levy taxes on your property. Exemptions.Some organizations' and individuals' properties are exempt from property taxes, such as churches, farmers' grain storage, and some taxing entities. The.Application for Tax Exemption.is available here or from the Appraiser's office.top of page.Change of Valuation Notice.Each year, on or before March 1, the County Appraiser is required to send you a change of valuation notice. This notice describes the property you own, gives the actual values for both the prior and current year, and will provide you an opportunity to present your objection to the Appraiser. When you receive a change of value notice, study it carefully. The value shown on the notice will affect the amount of taxes you will pay the following December. The deadlines for appeal are set by Kansas law and are enforced. If you feel the value the Appraiser has placed on your property is incorrect, you may wish to inspect the Appraiser's records on your property. If you choose to file an appeal, you will want to provide information and documentation to support your estimate of value. Information such as a recent independent appraisal, recent sales of similar homes in your neighborhood, similar homes that are currently on the market, and written estimated from real estate professionals will all lend support and credibility to your opinion of value.
Appraisal - Estimating Value
County Appraiser.The County Appraiser is responsible for discovering, listing, and valuing all property within Pratt County and must follow state laws when meeting these responsibilities. Each year the Appraiser must review recent real estate sales and consider local economic conditions in order to maintain the most current value of the property in the county. The Appraiser's goal is equalization of property values. This causes the taxes that pay for many community services to be distributed fairly and equitably between property owners.
