Edmonson County PVA Kyle White has announced that the annual inspection period for the 2020 property tax rolls will be from July 6 through July 20, 2020.
He also announced a provision in the Homestead and Disability Exemption. "Those who are 65 years or older and persons who are 100% disabled qualify for either the Homestead and Disability Exemption," he said. "This year's amount is a 39,300 reduction in assessment. That will be approximately $375 off their property taxes for 2020."
The announcement is published in full below:
INSPECTION PERIOD FOR THE PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT ROLL
The Edmonson County real property tax roll will be opened for inspection from July 6 through July 20, 2020. Under the supervision of the property valuation administrator or one of the deputies, any person may inspect the tax roll.
This is the January 1, 2020, assessment on which state, county and school taxes for 2020 will be due in the Fall of 2020.
The tax roll is in the office of the property valuation administrator. Unless otherwise determined by the property valuation administrator, inspections will be conducted remotely. If in-person inspections are available, the tax roll may be inspected between the hours 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Thursday and Saturday and 7:30 a.m.-5:00p.m. Friday.
Any taxpayer desiring to appeal an assessment on real property made by the PVA must first request a conference with the PVA or a designated deputy. The conference may be held prior to or during the inspection period. Due to the current COVID_19 crisis, all conferences will be held via video conference, where available, email, telephone or fax. Documentation supporting your opinion of value will continue to be required; however, you will receive specific instructions on the best method to submit your documentation after contacting our office about your intention to have a conference.
Any taxpayer still aggrieved by an assessment on real property, after the conference with the PVA or designated deputy, may appeal to the county board of assessment appeals.
Your appeal must be filed with the county clerk's office no later than one workday following the conclusion of the inspection period. Please contact the county clerk's office to receive instructions on the method that office is using to accept appeals this year and to obtain a form that can be used to file your appeal.
Any taxpayer failing to appeal to the county board of assessment appeals, or failing to appear before the board, either in person or by designated representative, will not be eligible to appeal directly to the Kentucky Claims Commission.
Appeals of personal property assessments shall not be made to the county board of assessment appeals. Personal property taxpayers shall be served notice under the provisions of KRS 132.450(4) and shall have the protest and appeal rights granted under the provisions of KRS 131.110.
The following steps should be taken when a taxpayer does not agree with the assessed value of personal property as determined by the property valuation administrator.
(1) He or she must list under protest (for certification) what is believed to be the fair cash value of the property.
(2) A written protest must be filed directly with the Department of Revenue, Office of Property Valuation within 30 days from the date of the notice of assessment.
This protest must be in accordance with KRS 131.110.
The final decision of the Department of Revenue may be appealed to the Kentucky Claims Commission.
