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.
