TOPEKA, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--December 20th is the deadline for Kansans to pay their property tax payments. Those who prefer to avoid a trip to the post office can conveniently pay their property tax debts online by using the Kansas Online Property Tax Payments service. Developed in partnership between the Kansas County Treasurers Association and Kansas.gov, the Kansas Online Property Tax Payments service was created to give taxpayers the opportunity to make their payments online.
“The Kansas County Treasurers Association is proud to offer this service to the citizens of Kansas. We recognize that many people appreciate having online payment services. People who use the Kansas Online Property Tax Payments service will surely appreciate the benefits offered by this application,” said Kathy Tremont, KCTA.

- Accounts must not be in dispute or protest
- Funds must be drawn on a U.S. bank account
Payments may be made through December 20th for first-half tax payments. Second-half tax payments may be made through the system beginning in May 2013.
