STUDY ANALYSIS FOR
ASSESSMENT YEAR 2017
TO L.1919, CH 279,2
Annually, at least five days prior to the mailing of
change of value notices pursuant to K.S.A. 79-1460, and amendments thereto, the
county or district appraiser shall cause to be published in the official county
newspaper the results of the market study analysis as prescribed by the
director of property valuation of the department of revenue.
A study of the residential, vacant and
commercial/industrial real estate markets indicated that the market is stable
with no significant upward or downward trend for properties in Osage County.
In accordance with the provisions in K.S.A. 79-1476, the
division of property valuation is required to annually furnish each county the
results of its study relating to changes, if any, of the use value of
agricultural land. Changes can and do occur as a result of several factors
including cropping practices, commodity prices and production costs.
Currently agricultural land values have been established
by the division of property valuation and Kansas State University. Osage County
will implement the agricultural land values as provided by the division of
property valuation. These values are available for review within the County Appraiser’s
