Real Estate & Personal Property Tax

Billing
Tax bills are mailed once a year on or soon after November 1. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer from payment responsibilities.

Accepted Methods of Payment

  • Pay Taxes Online. To pay taxes online using a credit/debit card or by eCheck you must have your tax statement and a KanAccess username and password. (For first time users, you will register on www.kansas.gov/propertytax/ to receive your username and password.) There will be a convenience fee charged by the payment processor for this service. Delinquent taxes are not eligible to pay online. 
  • By Mail. To pay taxes by mail you may send a check, money order or cashier's check along with your tax coupon (located at the bottom of your tax statement). You may write one check for multiple tax payments. If taxes are delinquent, please contact our office for a current amount due, as penalties accrue daily.
  • In Person. To pay taxes in person you may use cash, credit card, check, money order or cashier's check. There is a convenience fee charged by the payment processor of $3.95 for using a credit/debit card (the County does not retain any portion of this fee). Every measure of safety and reliability has been implemented in regards to this transaction process.
  • Drop Box. If you are paying by check, money order or cashier's check, you may utilize the drop box located on the south side of the Miami County Administration Building. Please include your tax coupon with your payment.

Payment Options

  • Payment in Full. If paying taxes in full, the due date is December 20.
  • Payment in Two Installments. The first half due date is December 20 of the current year and the second half due date is May 10 of the following year.
  • Please Note- Interest and penalties will begin accruing if due dates are not met.
Real Estate
Between December 21 and May 9, the first half payment plus interest can be paid. If not paid prior to May 10, the full tax plus interest must be paid. The first half payment is no longer an option.

Taxes that are due and delinquent for three years are subject to tax foreclosure sale by Miami County. The property is subject to sale at public auction. Any persons owing delinquent taxes to Miami County are not eligible to place bids.

Personal Property, Trucks, Oil & Gas

If first half tax is not paid by December 20, the full tax amount plus interest is due. A sheriff's warrant is issued for collection on unpaid taxes. If first half tax is paid by December 20, the second half is due by May 10.

A sheriff's warrant is also issued for collection on unpaid second half taxes . If the taxes remain unpaid by October 1, per Kansas statute, the district court clerk assesses a judgment fee.

Tax Roll Changes

All tax roll changes are initiated by the Appraiser’s Office. Upon the treasurer’s office receiving the change order, a corrected tax statement is issued. If a reduction in tax results in an over-payment, a refund will be issued from the treasurer’s office.

Archived Tax Records
Tax rolls are retained permanently. Per Miami County Fee Schedule (R02-02-020); fees and costs shall be assessed to the party requesting any public record.
