New county rates

Chase County enacted a new rate of 1%, which brings the combined Chase County rate to 7.15%. This impacts the following cities (listed with new combined rates):

  • Cedar Point: 7.15%

New special districts

There will be a number of new special districts in Kansas in 2015. These are complicated. Each district encompasses particular addresses on particular streets (maybe only odd addresses, maybe only even addresses, maybe both). I would say it’s unbelievable, except for that’s the way special districts are done. Specifics are available on the Department of Revenue rate change page.
