79-262. Classification of property constructed with proceeds of industrial revenue bonds; notification to county appraiser; appeals; reclassification. (a) After July 1, 2014, the owner of any project being constructed with the proceeds of industrial revenue bonds which has been exempted from ad valorem taxation pursuant to K.S.A. 79-201a Second, and amendments thereto, or the owner of any property exempted from ad valorem taxation pursuant to section 13 of article 11 of the constitution of the state of Kansas, shall within 30 days of the completion of any improvement on the project, notify the county appraiser of such completion and the county appraiser upon receipt of such notification shall classify such improvement as real property, personal property or a combination of both real and personal property within 180 days of receipt of the notice, and shall notify the owner of such classification.
