The Bourbon County Treasurer’s Office partnered with the Information Network of Kansas (INK) to provide online access to property tax payments through the Kansas Property Tax Payment service. The Kansas Property Tax Payment application allows taxpayers to make property tax payments from their desktop or mobile device. INK operates under a self-funded model, and no appropriated dollars were used to develop and maintain the payment service.
“To provide good customer service, the County has to provide multiple ways for the Taxpayers to pay their taxes,” said Dunn. “We are very happy to offer online payments in Bourbon County. While we will continue to offer the same services to taxpayers who choose to pay their taxes at the Courthouse, we hope this additional service results in time savings for the users and reduces lines for all taxpayers.”
Bourbon County residents may begin making payments through the online service now. First-half payments for property taxes are due on December 20, 2014. Second-half tax payments are accepted beginning in January 2015.
Access to your tax account requires a current tax statement issued by the Bourbon County Treasurer’s Office. Additionally, the following must be true:
- Accounts cannot have a prior year tax delinquency
- Accounts must not be in protest or dispute
- Funds must be drawn on a U.S. bank account
