Understanding Kansas Property Taxes

Overview of Kansas Taxes

Kansas collects a total of $26,761,817,000 in revenue every year. Of that, $4,483,722,000 comes from property taxes, or 16.8% of total revenue. As a result, Kansas has the 15th highest property tax rate in the country, which is 27.7% more than the national average of 1.06%. Generally speaking, states where property taxes make up a higher percentage of total state revenue have higher property tax rates, and states where property taxes make up a smaller percentage of state revenue have lower property tax rates.

How does this translate to what homeowners actually pay? The average home value across Kansas is $157,058, meaning the average Kansas homeowner pays 1.36% of their home value every year in property taxes, or $13.59 for every $1,000 in home value.
