Being Active Duty and not having Kansas as your home of record, allows you to be exempt from paying personal property tax in the state.
Military Exemption by Federal law:
The individual does not claim Kansas as his/her permanent resident state with the military;
The individual's name is shown on the title as the legal owner of the vehicle(s);
The individual is the full-time regular military service of the United States;
The individual is absent from his/her permanent resident state in compliance of military orders and the personal property is located outside the permanent resident state; and
The personal property is not used in or arising from a trade or business.
We do request that you fill out a military affidavit (pdf) at the time of reporting your personal property. We also ask that you provide a copy of your LES for proof of Home of Record. Please contact the Appraiser's Office with any questions at (785) 238-4407.
