Tax warrants and liens are filed by a state government office. The fee for filing tax warrants is due from the taxpayer and is not collected until the judgment is satisfied or the lien is released.

Tax warrants are filed by the Kansas Department of Revenue for recovery of delinquent tax obligations. If any tax due to the State of Kansas is not paid within 60 days after it becomes due, the Director of Revenue or their designee issues a warrant.
The tax warrant amount is recorded with the court and becomes a lien upon the real property title and interest of the taxpayer(s) named on the tax warrant.
Tax warrants are treated as civil cases. The Director of Revenue or their designee may use executions, garnishments or other methods of collections allowable in civil cases.
You should take the Satisfaction of Judgment to the District Court office where the tax warrant was filed. The lien on the taxpayer’s real property is not released until the Satisfaction of Judgment is filed with the court. There will be a filing fee assessed. Once the Satisfaction of Judgment is filed, you will receive a certified copy for your records. You may be required to provide this documentation to different agencies to get the lien released from their records.
You should provide a certified copy of the Satisfaction of Judgment to the credit reporting agency. The District Court office does not inform these agencies when a Satisfaction of Judgment is filed. This is your responsibility.
