The Mason County real property tax roll will be opened for inspection from July 6TH through July 20th, 2020.
Under the supervision of the property valuation administrator or one of the deputies, any person may inspect
the tax roll.

This is the January 1, 2020 assessment on which state, county, health, library, county extension, city and school
taxes for 2020 will be due about November 1, 2020.

The tax roll is in the office of the property valuation administrator located at 220 ½ Sutton Street and may be
inspected between the hours 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:00 a.m. through 11:00 a.m. Saturday.

Any taxpayer desiring to appeal an assessment on real property made by the PVA must first request a conference
with the PVA or a designated deputy. The conference may be held prior to or during the inspection period.

Any taxpayer still aggrieved by an assessment on real property, after the conference with the PVA or designated
deputy, may appeal to the county board of assessment appeals.

The taxpayer can appeal his assessment by filing in person or sending a letter or other written petition stating
the reasons for appeal, identifying the property and stating the taxpayer's opinion of the fair cash value of the property.

The appeal must be filed with the county clerk's office no later than one work day following the conclusion of
the inspection period.

Any taxpayer failing to appeal to the county board of assessment appeals, or failing to appear before the board,
either in person or by designated representative, will not be eligible to appeal directly to the
Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals.

Appeals of personal property assessments shall not be made to the county board of assessment appeals.
Personal property taxpayers shall be served notice under the provisions of KRS 132.450(4) and shall have the
protest and appeal rights granted under the provisions of KRS 131.110.

The following steps should be taken when a taxpayer does not agree with the assessed value of personal property
as determined by the office of property valuation administrator.

  1. He must list under protest (for certification) what he believes to be the fair cash value of his property.
  2. He must file a written protest directly with the Department of Revenue, Office of Property Valuation
    within 30 days from the date of the notice of assessment.
  3. This protest must be in accordance with KRS 131.110.
  4. The final decision of the Department of Revenue may be appealed to the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals.

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 Mason 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 January 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 Mason County Sheriff's Office at (606) 564-3309 to obtain the information.

If you have any specific questions, comments, or suggestions regarding the Mason County P.V.A. Office, please feel free to contact me at (606) 564-3700.
