‘Yes’ on boat question – While it isn’t a tax that is paid by a wide population, allowing the state to lower the tax rate on watercraft will serve as a benefit to the state by increasing overall tax revenue and spurring investment in Kansas’ recreation industry. Current state law assesses watercraft at 30 percent, which means the owner of a $20,000 boat in Reno County, with an average mill levy of 156.75, pays roughly $940 in annual property taxes. That same boat in Oklahoma, however, costs only $150 a year in taxes.
