Tax Bill Information

General Information

Tax bills are mailed in early to mid-November. The first half of taxes are due by December 20th. If the first half is paid by December 20th, the second half will be due by May 10th of the following year. If the first half is not paid by December 21st, it begins to accrue interest.

  • If the first half of your personal property tax is not paid by December 20th, it begins to accrue interest and full payment will be required.

Real Estate Tax Collection:

After December 20th and until May 10th the first half payment plus interest can be paid.

If taxes are due and unpaid for 3 years, the property is subject to a tax foreclosure suit by the County. The property can then be sold at public auction. Anyone that has delinquent real estate taxes in the county cannot bid at these auctions.

Personal Property Tax Collection:

After December 20th, the full amount of Personal Property taxes are due, plus interest. If the first half taxes are paid before December 20th, the second half is due by May 10th. Full unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for Collection in March. Second half unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for collection in August.

If the first half or full payment of personal property is not paid by December 20th then an exception case will be added to any vehicle's registered in your name, this will prevent you from having the ability to renew your vehicle's registration until your personal property tax and interest is paid in full. All notices for renewals will be mailed from the state as scheduled, this does not mean a stop has not been added to your vehicle in the county office.

Making a Payment

Make checks payable to the Geary County Treasurer. Please write a property address or tax/parcel ID on the check. Also, if mailing a check please include a contact number on the check. Include the appropriate stub from your tax statement showing 1st half, 2nd half or full payment. You will receive a receipt by mail if the box is check marked and requested.

You can pay your taxes online by visiting the Kansas County Treasurers Association Website.

Please review your tax statement, be certain this tax statement covers your property. Geary County is not responsible if taxes are paid on the wrong property.
