JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. - Johnson County sheriff’s deputies will turn into tax collectors beginning this month until September.
The county released their list of the top 20 delinquent property tax payers.
Among them are big business franchises like a Taco Bell and a Fed Ex location.
Nearly 2500 people or businesses owe back-taxes in Johnson County. The county is trying to collect more than $600,000.
Delinquent notices for personal property are sent out on or before Feb. 20th, however if the payment is not received by April, a Sheriff’s deputy is sent to the home or business to personally collect the payment or work out some kind of payment plan.
There’s one thing though deputies won’t do; call you to demand money; if that happens it’s a scam.
Unfortunately this day and age there’s million scams out there,” said Master Deputy Craig Walion from the Johnson Co. Sheriff’s Dept.,“We won’t collect anything over the phone well go out and if were not able to make contact with someone if no one’s at home, no one answers the door, they’re busy we’ll leave an orange card on the door."
The Wyandotte Co. Sheriff’s Department has a similar system, although theirs is year round.
