The Mortgage Calculator helps individuals calculate the mortgage registration tax due to Sedgwick County/State of Kansas, and will also break down the tax due to reflect the Heritage Tax and Registration Tax portions.
The beige colored sections of the worksheet are the areas in which you are asked to enter information. If you make a mistake, click "reset" and start over. You may also go to the field with the incorrect amount, correct the error and click "submit" again to see the new results.
Step 1. Begin in the "County" section of the worksheet. For each mortgaged property in Kansas, enter the appropriate county name and appraised value in the beige colored fields. For Sedgwick County's value you will need to enter it in the first row, second column.
Step 2. Tab to the next table and enter the state name and the appraised value if applicable. (DO NOT ENTER ANY VALUES FOR THE STATE OF KANSAS.)
Step 3. Tab to the "Total Mortgage Amount" field and enter the appropriate amount.
Step 4. After you have filled in the appropriate amounts, click the "submit" button. This will calculate the percentage of total mortgage registration tax due in Kansas/Sedgwick County. The results will appear in the blue colored fields. Your total Mortgage Registration Tax due will appear in the yellow box. This is the amount you should remit to the Register of Deeds.
Step 5. Complete the Mortgage Registration Fee Affidavit form. (You will need Adobe Acrobat to fill out the form.) Print out the form, fill out the required fields and be sure to sign the document.
Step 6. Mail your check and the signed affidavit to:
