2015 Property Tax Bills 

If you own property in Fayette County, you should soon receive your 2015 property tax bill.  The PVA office is responsible for establishing the fair cash value of your property which, in part, determines the amount of property tax you owe.  Taxes are calculated using the assessment of your property as of January 1, 2015 and the tax rates set by the taxing districts (LFUCG, Fayette County Schools, Commonwealth of Kentucky and others).  Assessments for 2015 are finalized and cannot be changed for your current property tax bill, but you may request a review of your assessment for 2016 by following this link or calling us at (859) 246-2722. 

If you are 65 or older, or receiving disability payments, you may qualify for Kentucky’s Homestead Exemption.  Find more information about the Homestead Exemption by visiting the Homestead Exemption page of our web site.

Property owners are responsible for paying property tax bills whether or not a printed tax bill is received.  There will be substantial penalties for not paying your tax bill in a timely manner.  Please be sure that the PVA office has the correct mailing address for your tax bills.  If you have not received your tax bill by October 15, you should contact us to confirm the mailing address.

Kentucky law requires the tax bill to be issued in the name of the January 1 owner, but if the house has been sold or transferred after January 1 the bills are sent in care of the new owner.  However, there may be inadequate time to update this information for sales or transfers that occur near the date the tax bills are printed.  If you have any questions about your prorated portion of the tax bill you should contact your closing agent or attorney. 

We invite you to explore our website, examine your property record and check the accuracy of the characteristics we have on file.  If any of this information is incorrect, you may call our office and speak with an assessor who will make any necessary changes, or email us to correct the information we have.  As always, our goal is to be fair and equitable with our assessment process. 

We hope this information has been helpful to you and if you have any questions about your assessment, homestead or disability exemptions, feel free to call us here at the PVA office.  As always we are here to be of service to you.
