CALLOWAY COUNTY PLANNER
Welcome to the website for the Calloway County P.V.A. Office. This website is dedicated to promoting a realistic goal in helping the public understand the workings of the PVA Office and the steps that are followed to treat everyone fairly and in an equitable manner. This website will also be utilized to address questions about the Kentucky property tax system. New policies and procedures and current statutes will be posted to keep taxpayers informed.
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. An attempt is made to mail the tax bill to the new owners using the information provided to us by a tax agreement from the buyer or seller. If, however, a new owner does not receive a copy of the tax bill, the owner may contact the Sheriff’s Office at (270) 761-4829 to obtain a copy.
