Now is the time to request a review of your property for the 2021 tax year if you believe the current assessment is not fair or equitable. To begin the process, please click here to protest your assessment.  Property values cannot be appealed or changed after the end of open inspection on May 17.

Over the coming weeks, assessment notices are being mailed to all property owners in Fayette County whose assessments increased in 2021 from the prior year.  You do not have to receive an assessment notice in order to discuss or question the assessed value of your property, but you must start the conversation while changes can still be made to the value. To learn more, visit the Assessments and Appeals page.

Property owners who remain dissatisfied with their assessments after conferencing with the PVA may appeal to the Local Board of Tax Appeals. You may appeal in writing to the Local Board of Tax Appeals c/o the Fayette County Clerk, 162 E. Main Street, by the close of business on May 18, 2021.  Appeals filed by a paid representative must include a letter of authorization from the owner.

If you do not agree with the decision of the local board then you have the right to appeal to the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals and ultimately to the Circuit Court.

Homeowners aged 65 years or older, or receiving disability payments, may qualify for Kentucky’s Homestead Exemption. Find more information about the Homestead Exemption and view the printable application by visiting the Homestead Exemption page of our web site.

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.

Please use this form to change your mailing address.  You may e-mail it to PVA@FayettePVA.com.
