Welcome to the Website for the PVA of Laurel County!  The Laurel County PVA Office 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 in a fair and equitable manner. 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 will be available. Visit the Tax Roll page 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. We attempt to mail the tax bill to the new owner using the information provided to us by deeds, or the new owner. However, should a property owner not receive a copy of the tax bill, the owner may contact the Laurel County Sheriff at 606-864-6600 to obtain a copy. Laurel County Laurel County is located at the crossroads of I-75 and the Daniel Boone Parkway, with beautiful Laurel Lake lying on the southwestern side. It is bordered on the North and West by the Rockcastle River. It was established as a county in 1825 and has an abundant growth of Mountain Laurel bushes, hence the name. The Wilderness Road and the Boone Trace both cross Laurel County. A large Swiss settlement came to Laurel County in the late 1800's and many of their descendents remain here today. There has been a tremendous growth in this area in the last few years, with many new industries locating here. The population is expected to be over 60,000 for the 2000 census. Tourism plays a large part in the economy with Laurel Lake and Levi Jackson State Park and many other attractions located nearby. London is located about midway from Lexington and Knoxville and has an abundance of churches, motels, restaurants and shopping. Laurel County hosts the World Chicken Festival in September. We have several golf courses in the region, boat docks, hiking trails and of course the Daniel Boone National Forest occupies more than 22 percent of the 435 square mile area. This is a very diverse area with people of many ethnic backgrounds living and working successfully. Laurel County has one of the best school systems in the state with state of the art facilities. We have a Community/Civic Center, YMCA and a fine campus with a branch of the Somerset Community College. A new Federal Courthouse was completed in 2002. We welcome you warmly to Laurel County, one of the fastest growing counties in the state!
