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 responibility
Also note that our office requires payment in full of the tax bill by one or both of the parties.
We cannot accept pro-rated payments.
