Payment of taxes is the responsibility of the owner. Tax statements are mailed by December 15th. If you own property in McPherson County and do not receive a tax statement, please contact the County Treasurer Office. There are no second half reminders mailed.
Real Estate Taxes
First half taxes are due by December 20.
After December 20 and until May 10, the first half payment can be paid plus interest.
After May 10, the full tax plus interest must be paid.
If taxes are due and unpaid for three years, the property is subject to a tax foreclosure suit by the County. The property can then be sold at public auction.
Personal Property Taxes
First half taxes are due by December 20. After December 20 the full amount of personal property taxes (including gas and oil, intangibles and heavy trucks) are due plus interest. Full-unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for collection by March and unpaid gas and oil taxes are sent to the oil companies for collection.
If the first half taxes were paid in December, the second half is due May 10. Second half unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for Collection by August and unpaid gas and oil taxes are sent to the oil companies for collection.
Tax Roll Corrections:
Tax bill corrections are initiated by the County Appraiser.
The County Treasurer’s office receives this information and issues a corrected tax statement. Reductions will be reflected on the second half payment if taxes are not paid in full. Fully paid taxes with a reduction will result in a refund check being issued.
