The Rice County Treasurer’s Office is an agent for the State of Kansas for registering and titling motor vehicles and renewing driver’s licenses.

The second major function of the Treasurer’s Office is the collection of property tax on real estate, business, other personal property, and intangibles.

The third major function of the office is as “County Banker.” All monies that are due to the County are remitted to our office, and we are in charge of the investments, while the money is the responsibility of the County. During the year, we are required to disburse the money to the various taxing units (city, school districts, etc.) for their use.
