Kentucky Tax Law Information
Kentucky property tax law establishes the assessment date as January 1st. Kentucky law also requires the Property Valuation Administrator to assess all property at 100% Fair Market Value each year. Ownership of property for tax purposes is also set by the January 1st requirement.
If a property is purchased after that date, state statute requires the tax bill be issued in the name of the former owner until the next calendar year. An attempt is made to mail the tax bill to the new owners using the information provided to us by a tax agreement from the buyer or seller.
If, however, a new owner does not receive a copy of the tax bill, the owner may contact the Sheriff's Office at (270) 338-3345 to obtain a copy.
