Carter County Property Valuation Administrator's Office


The Property Valuation Administrator's Office is dedicated to serving and assisting the public with understanding the operation of the P.V.A. Office. In an effort to better serve property owners, appraisers, bankers, other government officials and taxpayers, the Carter County P.V.A. has created this website. This site will give general property information and links to state agencies.

Kentucky property tax law establishes the assessment date as of Januray 1st of each year. All property is assessed as of that date. Ownership of property for tax purposes is also set by the January 1st requirement. If a property is purchased after that date, state statute requires the tax bill be issued in the name of the former owner until the next calendar year. An attempt is made to mail the tax bill to the new owners using information provided to us by recorded deeds. If, however, a new owner does not receive a copy of the tax bill, the owner may contact the Carter County Sheriff's Office at 606-474-5616 to obtain the information.

If you have any specific questions, comments, or suggestions regarding the Carter County P.V.A. Office, please feel free to contact me at 606-474-5663.
