The County Tax Collector "according to State law" may collect fire fees for volunteer fire department districts. The Saline County Tax Collector collects for twelve (12) volunteer fire districts. The fire district chief, or board secretary, work with the Tax Collector's Improvement District Manager to assign fire fees to parcels of land within their fire district. In March each year, if you live in a volunteer fire district, you will see a fire fee applied to your annual tax statement. The volunteer fire department fire fees are collected with the taxpayer's ad valorem taxes. Each year in March, the fire districts shall file (in the Saline County Clerk's Office) an annual "Taxpayer Transparency Improvement District Report." For a blank form click here.
