Q:  Can I make payments on my tax bill?

Q:  May I pay multiple bills with one payment?


A:  Yes, as long as you attach a copy of the bills in which you are paying so that we may apply the money to each bill promptly.


Q:  Will I receive a receipt for my tax payment?


A:  Our office can send you a receipt if you send a stamped, self addressed envelope with your payment.


Q:  What is the official tax year?


A:  Kentucky law requires the tax bill to be issued in the name of the owner, as of January 1st of each year. Therefore, bills due beginning November 1, 2016 are for the assessment year as of January 1, 2016.


Q:  What do I do with my tax bill if it is for a house I sold?


A:  Please forward that tax bill to the new owner at your prior address.


Q:  To whom do I pay delinquent taxes for prior tax years?


A:  You will need to contact the Hardin County Clerk’s office in order to obtain the payoff amount on any delinquent prior year tax bill. The office number is 270-765-2171


Q:  Who pays the taxes on the property that I bought or sold during the year?


A:  Kentucky law requires the tax bill to be issued in the name of the January 1st owner. If the house has been sold or transferred after January 1st, the bills are normally sent in care of the new owner. However, for sales or transfers close to the date the tax bills are printed, time may be inadequate to update this information.


As explained above, the tax bill covers the period of a calendar year. Therefore, a closing agent or attorney will usually calculate and collect the pro-rated taxes due from each party at closing. In some cases, the agent or attorney will then pay the bill to the Sheriff. In other cases, the buyer or seller may receive a credit on the settlement statement but will then be responsible for paying the bill to the Sheriff.


Please check with your closing agent or attorney for instructions on your responsibility. Also note that our office requires payment in full of the tax bill by one or both of the parties; we cannot accept prorated payments.


Q:  What are, and to whom do I apply for, Homestead and Disability Exemptions?


A:  These are exemptions that enable you to reduce the taxable assessment (and accordingly your tax bill) of the home that you own and within which you live if you are over the age of 65 or are 100% disabled. Please refer any questions regarding these exemptions to the Property Valuation Administrator's Office at 270-765-2129.
