The Kansas Boat Property Tax Amendment is on the 2012 ballot in the state of Kansas as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would allow the state's property tax on boats to be altered. Specifically, the amendment would allow state legislators to classify and tax watercraft on a basis different from other property. The measure would not change how watercraft is taxed in the state, but rather it would allow for a change to be made.[1]

It was proposed during the 2012 state legislative session. A similar measure was on the 2000 statewide ballot, but was rejected with 50.7% of voters against it.[2]

Path to ballot

A 2/3rds vote in both chambers of the Kansas State Legislature is required to refer an amendment to the ballot.
