  • Kentucky’s property tax was established June 1, 1792, in the Kentucky Constitution. In 1965, the Kentucky Court of Appeals ruled in Russman vs. Luckett that fair market value must be the standard for property assessments.
  • Further, in 1990, the General Assembly as part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) mandated that all real property be assessed at 100% of Fair Cash Value.
  • The owner’s name as of January 1 is required on the property tax bill. If a property was sold after January 1, the Fayette PVA Office makes every attempt to send tax bills in care of the new owner.
  • If you do not receive your tax bill, you should contact the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office at (859) 252-1771 to request a copy of the bill.
