We shall maintain the website to address questions about Kentucky's Property Tax System. New policies and procedures and current statutes will be posted to keep taxpayers informed. Current certified Tax Roll (assessments), ownership information and characteristics, photographs and sketches when available. Visit the Tax Roll page for complete information.
Kentucky property tax law establishes the assessment date as January 1st of the current tax year. All property is assessed as of that date. Ownership of the property for tax purposes is also set by the January 1st requirement. If a property is transferred after the January 1st date, state statute requires the tax bill be issued in the name of the former owner until the next calendar year. Every attempt is made to mail the tax bill to the new owner using information provided to us by recorded deeds. If, however, a new owner does not receive a copy of the tax bill please contact the Ohio County Sheriff’s office at 298-4444 to request a copy.
