Here is the delinquent property tax list for Sedgwick County for 2015, summarized and presented in an interactive table that you may sort.
Of note, the two property owners with the largest delinquent balances are the City of Wichita and the Kansas Turnpike Authority.
Inquiry to the City of Wichita reveals that two properties, 3239 E 1st and 3244 E Douglas ($72,282.69 and $47,878.37), are left over from a real estate developer’s default. He, not the city, was responsible for these taxes. A third property is a leased property related to the East Kellogg expansion, and the tenant is responsible for the taxes. For another property, the taxes were paid late, and another was an error that has been corrected.
The Sedgwick County Treasurer issues this caution:
Public notice is hereby given that taxes on Personal Property located in Sedgwick County, State of Kansas, is unpaid, in whole or in part, and here appears the name of each delinquent taxpayer followed by his/her last known address and the total amount of unpaid taxes, penalties and costs.
Some of the names listed may have already paid their personal property taxes or may be awaiting results of a tax grievance or tax protest before paying the taxes due. Unfortunately, it is not practical to delete these names.
I regret any undue embarrassment this may cause those who are still awaiting tax protest decisions.
