Using the small town of Nashville, Kansas, a KWCH Television news story shows why property tax reform is needed in Kansas.
Specifically, reform of the appraisal process is required. In Nashville, just by cleaning up his property, a homeowner’s property taxes doubled. Proposition K would, in part, introduce predictable growth in appraisals, which would eliminate situations like this in Nashville.
The KWCH news story by reporter Kim Wilhelm, which includes video, is Prop K Could Change Your Property Taxes.
