How can I lower my taxes?
Properties can be revalued with the following information:
- Recent appraisals
- Insurance policies
- Sales of similar properties
The PVA will evaluate the information you provide and compare with sales information available in the office.
How do I apply for an exemption?
You can apply for the homestead exemption anytime during the year you turn 65.
An exemption may be granted for homestead (for persons over 65 years of age), disability (if you can provide the PVA Office with the required documentation).
Please see the homestead/disability page for specific information.
Why is the PVA in my neighborhood?
The PVA is responsible for inspecting all properties in the county at least once every four years. Any area of the county may be reviewed at any time.
Why do I need documentation on a junked, wrecked, or stolen vehicle?
Any vehicle or boat not transferred in the county clerk’s office will create a tax bill until the title is transferred or junked.
The Kentucky Department of Revenue requires PVAs to have documentation on any motor vehicle or boat that is taken off the tax roll. A bill of sale, receipt from a junk or salvage yard, or an accident report is acceptable proof.
Where do I pay my real estate taxes?
The PVA Office cannot accept payment for taxes. All property taxes are paid to the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office.
