INTANGIBLES TAX:  North Newton is one of the cities in Kansas that levies an intangible tax.  This is a tax on interest and dividend earnings.  Persons who have such income are required to complete Kansas Tax Form 200.  This form is filed with your Kansas income tax form each spring.  The State of Kansas notifies the Harvey County Clerk of the filing.  The County Clerk in turn posts the tax on the individual property tax statement.  The tax is then collected in the same manner as the property owner's ad valorem property tax.  Your accountant should be aware of this requirement.  If you have recently moved to town and/or if you prepare your own State income tax forms, this is a matter of which you should be aware.
