GETTING TO KNOW YOUR COUNTY APPRAISER'S OFFICE
The County Appraiser's department is responsible for assessing
and setting values in Kingman County. In 1985 the Kansas Legislature passed new reappraisal laws that all appraisers
must abide by. Rick Batchellor is the County Appraiser and has a staff of three individuals. The appraiser's office
sets the values for real estate, personal property, and oil & gas. They are also responsible for change of ownership,
parcel maintenance and mapping.
In addition to those tasks, the Appraiser's office is responsible for administering
the Neighborhood Revitalization Program. This important program offers a tax rebate for ten years on new improvements
on real estate and is available to anyone wanting to build in the county. The cost of the improvements must be at least
$25,000 and add that much in value to the property. If you are interested in signing up for this program please come
in and visit with Rick; he'll be glad to help you with the details.
The Appraiser's Office emphasizes that they
are here to serve and assist the public.
