General Information Churches In 1990 legislative session, the General Assembly developed a constitutional amendment which expanded the exemption that could be granted to church owned property. The specific language of the amendment, as approved by the voters of Kentucky in November 1990, is as follows: Real property owned and occupied by, and personal property both tangible and intangible owned by institutions of religion. Examples: House of regularly scheduled Worship Services Land & improvements used for Church camps Buildings used for meetings and social events aimed primarily at church members Outdoor recreational areas held for use by church members Parking lots or garages essential for the congregations use to attend worship services, even if the lot or garage is rented out during the week The amendment now allows an exemption to be granted for all personal property owned by a church. This includes all motor vehicles, equipment and investments that are held in the church's name. The key issue to determine if a church is occupying a parcel of land is the use of the property. An organization may apply for property tax exemption by completing form 62A023 in its entirety and submitting it to the Madison County Property Valuation Office .   Other Exempt Properties  Previous Page
