Property tax assessment and tax rate are the two factors that determine your tax bill.
Kentucky State law (KRS 160.460) requires all real property be assessed “at one hundred percent (100%) of fair cash value, the Kentucky Constitution (Section 172) defines assessed value as “the price [property] would bring at fair voluntary sale.” The Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator’s office (PVA) makes its determination of assessed value by evaluating recent sale prices of similar property, improvements made to property, its location and sales demand.
State, County and City governments, and School Boards, set property tax rates. The City of Jeffersontown’s 2020 property tax rate is $0.1401 per $100 of assessed value (ie, $100,000 assessed value = $141.10 tax bill)

Yes. Two exemptions are available for qualifying property owner(s).
The Homestead Exemption is available to property owners that are 65 years old, or older.
The Disability Exemption is available to property owners that have been classified as totally disabled by any public or private retirement system.
In 2020 property owners eligible for either exemption will have $39,300 subtracted from their property’s total assessment. This decrease in assessed value will discount your tax bill by $55.06. (ie, ($39,300 assessment / 100) x $0.1401 tax rate = $55.06 tax discount)
Tax bills are considered delinquent as of January 1st at which time a one time 6% penalty is assessed and interest begins to accrue at a rate of 6% per annum on the unpaid balance.
