      Open Inspection Begins May 5th

Kentucky Statutes (KRS 133.045) establishes a period of time each year, referred to as open inspection, when taxpayers who do not believe their assessments to be fair and equitable are encouraged to conference with the PVA. The 2014 open inspection period begins the first Monday in May, May 5, and continues for 13 days including Saturdays concluding on Monday, May 19. 

You do not have to wait until May 5 to conference with the office.  Now is the time to request a review of your property for the 2014 tax year if you believe the current assessment is not fair or equitable. Please fill out this online form to begin the process or call our office to speak with an assessor.  Property values cannot be appealed or changed after the end of open inspection on May 19.

Assessment notices were mailed to all property owners in Fayette County whose assessments increased in 2014 from the prior year.  You do not have to receive an assessment notice in order to discuss or question the assessed value of your property, but you must start the conversation while changes can still be made to the value. To learn more, visit the Assessments and Appeals page. 

Property owners who remain dissatisfied with their assessments after conferencing with the PVA may appeal to the Local Board of Tax Appeals. You may appeal in writing to the Local Board of Tax Appeals c/o the Fayette County Clerk, 162 E. Main Street, by the close of business on May 20, 2014.  Appeals filed by a paid representative must include a letter of authorization from the owner.

If you do not agree with the decision of the local board then you have the right to appeal to the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals and ultimately to the Circuit Court.

Homeowners aged 65 years or older, or receiving disability payments, may qualify for Kentucky’s Homestead Exemption. Find more information about the Homestead Exemption and view the printable application by visiting the Homestead Exemption page of our web site.

We invite you to explore our website, examine your property record and check the accuracy of the characteristics we have on file. If any of this information is incorrect, you may call our office and speak with an assessor who will make any necessary changes, or email us to correct the information we have. As always, our goal is to be fair and equitable with our assessment process. 

We hope this information has been helpful to you and if you have any questions about your assessment, homestead or disability exemptions, feel free to call us here at the PVA office.
