Sample Property Tax Report for a Kentucky property

Property tax is levied on the fair cash value of all real and tangible properties unless a specific exemption exists in the Kentucky Constitution.

Market Value

The Property Valuation Administrator (PVA) determines the fair cash value, also known as market value, for all taxable real property in the county. Fair cash value is defined as the price that a property will bring in a fair voluntary sale between a willing seller and a willing buyer, with neither being under any duress to buy or sell.

Land value $22,000
Improvement value + $78,000
Market value = $100,000
Assessed Value

A property's assessed value is the basis for calculating property tax. Section 172 of the Kentucky Constitution requires that assessed value to represent 100% of a property's fair cash value as of January 1 of each year.

Assessed value = $100,000
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Kenton County provides taxpayers with several types of exemptions, such as homestead exemptions, disability exemptions, and non-profit and religious organization exemptions, which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

Assessed value $100,000
Exemption amount - $34,000
Taxable value = $66,000
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the property's assessed value with the corresponding tax rates.
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions.
Base tax represents what an owner not benefiting from tax exemptions would pay.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs or additional charges such as 'special', 'city', or 'fire'.

Common School Dist $66,000 * 0.5570% = $367.62

Piner Fiskburg Fire Dist $66,000 * 0.2000% = $132.00
Northern KY Area Planning Commission $66,000 * 0.0300% = $19.80
