Automobiles and most recreational vehicles are classed and taxed at the time of registration for a license plate or a renewal decal. Please check with a personal property appraiser in the Ellis County appraiser's office for further clarification of what constitutes taxable personal property.

Individual Personal Property Value
Many personal property assets belonging to individuals are valued from market data using appraisal guides and state and regional market sources. This market data is then used to establish the current value of a particular asset. Typically, this value will be based on current trade-in values according to the age and market condition of the asset.

Automobiles, light trucks, and motorcycles are classed separately by the State of Kansas.
