Kentucky: Commercial Real Estate Owners in Fayette County Will Receive Additional Property Tax Bills in 2023

Commercial property owners in Fayette County, Kentucky will soon receive an additional supplemental property tax bill. The additional assessment is a result of a property tax rate increase approved by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council. The difference will be an additional 0.009 cents per $100 in value.

This 2023 additional bill represents the balance of the ad valorem property tax rate approved for streetlights and refuse collection by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council on August 31, 2023. The approved rates exceeded the allowable 4% and, therefore, were subject to recall as defined in KRS 132.017. Since, no valid recall petition was filed with the Fayette County Clerk by October 20, 2023, this additional bill will be due according to the following schedule:

2% Discount

12/01/2023 – 01/01/2024

Face Amount

01/02/2024 – 02/29/2024

5% Penalty

03/01/2024 – 03/31/2024

10% Penalty +10% Add-On

04/01/2024 – 06/15/2024

According to the above schedule, supplemental property tax payments received or postmarked by January 1, 2024, will receive a 2% discount. Payments received or postmarked by February 29, 2024, will be paid at face value and will avoid penalties. Payments received after March 1, 2024, will include penalties.

Taxpayers who did not receive their supplemental bill during the first week of December should contact the Office of Sheriff Property Tax Division at 859.252.1771 to request a duplicate copy.
