Tax Districts | Calculator

“How is my property tax bill calculated?”

Kentucky law establishes January 1 as the assessment date. The assessed value multiplied by the tax rate, equals the amount of taxes on your real estate. For example, if your home was valued at $75,000 and the tax rate was $0.80 per $100 of value, then the tax is $600.

The assessed value is determined by the PVA without regard to tax rates. The total amount of your tax bill is determined by tax rates set by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, Fayette County Public Schools and other taxing districts.  All tax rates are listed below the calculator on this page.

To estimate property taxes, insert the assessed value and district, then click “Calculate Tax.”

Please enter your assessment value and then select the district.
Enter whole dollars without a comma (50000, not 50,000).
