Welcome to the Website for the PVA Office of
In recent years, the Property Valuation Administrator's offices have had to handle an increasing number of requests for information from appraisers, bankers, other government officials, and property owners. This has required the PVA and staff to develop innovative procedures so that the additional workload can be handled in an efficient manner. The Internet has opened a new opportunity for our office to better serve you, the taxpayer. This web site is dedicated to promoting a realistic goal to help the public understand the workings of the PVA office and the steps that are followed to treat everyone fairly and in an equitable manner.
The Hancock County PVA Office will 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), characteristics when available, as well as ownership information, will be available. Visit our Tax Roll site for complete information. If it becomes necessary or convenient for you to subscribe to our web site so that you can receive more information, please visit our Tax Roll site for complete information.
Kentucky property tax law establishes the assessment date as of January 1st. 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. Deeds are now required to have an in care of address for the mailing of the tax bill. The PVA office will mail the current year tax bill to the address stated in the deed until the time where preparation of tax bills begins which is usually in mid September. If you do not receive your tax bill you may contact the Hancock County Sheriff's office at (270) 927-6247 to obtain a copy.
