Annually in March, the League of Kansas Municipalities publishes the Kansas Tax Rate & Fiscal Data Book. This book is structured to illustrate tax rates and fiscal data arising from each of the three classes of cities, counties, and unified school districts. The data is collected annually from several resources such as the Kansas Department of Revenue, the Secretary of State, the State Treasurer, and through solicitation of information in a survey sent to all cities in Kansas.
The League does not verify the individual calculations of the information as it is reported to us. Unfortunately, this year there was an error in the data received from the State of Kansas to calculate the “Total Mills Levied in City by All Units” as it did not include the USD school general levy of 20 mills.
Once we became aware of this issue, we immediately reached out to our contacts to obtain corrected information. We have recalculated the “Total Mills Levied in City by All Units” and have made the 2018 Tax Rate Book available in digital form below.
The League produces a multitude of publications, provides numerous trainings on municipal issues, and answers thousands of legal calls each year for cities to provide up-to-date information and keep members aware of the changing municipal environment. As always, we strive for accuracy in all we do.
