Intangible Taxes

General Information

Intangible taxes are a tax on interest and dividends that are filed with your Kansas Income Tax, Form 200.  The information is forwarded to the county for taxing purposes.  Riley County has a .75% rate, while cities and townships can have an additional rate of up to 2.25%.  Some cities and townships do not tax intangibles, while some have the maximum rate. 

Taxpayers have the option of paying intangible taxes in two halves.  The first half is due by December 20th and the second half is due by May 10th.  If the first half intangible taxes are not paid by December 20th the the taxes become due in full.

Taxes must be received in our office or postmarked by December 20th and May 10th to avoid interest.  NO SECOND HALF NOTICES ARE SENT.  You may sign up in our Notify Me Section to receive an email reminder of when taxes are due.

Any taxpayer with delinquent intangible taxes will not be able to tag, title or renew any motor vehicles.


Forms of payment accepted are cash, check, or credit card.  If paying by credit card there is a convenience fee associated with the payment based on the amount being charged.   See our Online Resources section for online payment options.


Taxes may also be paid over the phone by calling 1-800-272-9829.  At the prompt enter the jurisdiction code for Riley County which is 2613.

Delinquent Intangible Taxes

Intangible taxes become due in full if the first half is not paid by December 20th. Interest accrues daily on the full amount until paid. Delinquent tax notices for unpaid 1st half taxes are mailed out in February and a treasurer fee is assessed to the outstanding taxes and accrued interest. If the taxes are not paid within 14 days of receipt of the notice then Sheriff Warrants are issued.

Delinquent tax notices for unpaid 2nd half taxes are mailed out in July and a treasurer fee is assessed to the outstanding taxes and accrued interest. If the taxes are not paid within 14 days of receipt of the notice then Sheriff Warrants are issued. Delinquent intangible taxes are printed with the personal property listing in the newspaper and on the county website beginning the first Tuesday in October. Once the delinquent taxes are listed in the newspaper a publication fee is due in addition to the outstanding taxes, treasurer fee, and accrued interest.

All unpaid intangible tax warrants are turned over to the District Court on October 1st and a court fee becomes due in addition to the outstanding taxes, treasurer fee, publication fee, and accrued interest.
