Property Tax Bills In The Mail: Why Is This Important to You?
Happy Fall! With Fall comes the mailing of property tax bills. Why is this important? If you live in Boone or Kenton County, your tax bills are being mailed this week, the first week of October, and if you pay your property tax bills by the beginning of November you receive a 2% discount.
If you live in Campbell County, your property tax bills are being mailed at the end of October and if you pay by the end of November you receive a 2% discount.
The bills are not actually due to until December 31, but if you want to receive that 2% discount it's important to be mindful of those dates.
If you don't receive your tax property bill in the mail, you can obtain them on the county websites:
Campbell County: https://pva.campbellcountykentucky.com/ Bill comes out the end of Oct and 2% discount if paid by end of November
Boone County: https://boonepva.ky.gov/ Comes out 10/1 and 2% discount if paid by 11/01/19
Kenton County: http://www.kentonpva.com/ Comes out 10/1 and 2% discount if paid by 11/01/19
If you are a brand new 2019 homeowner, you may or may not receive your bill in the mail. You are still responsible for those property tax bills even if you don't receive the bill so make sure you access the website if you need a copy of your bill.
If you escrow your taxes and insurance in your payment your lender will likely take care of that disbursement, but it's a good idea to double-check with them to be sure they received the property tax bill so you can take advantage of that discount.
If you sold your home in 2019 and you receive a property tax bill on a property you sold, it would be a really kind thing to do to drop that tax bill in the mail to the new owner. You have likely settled your portion of those property taxes on your closing statement, so you don't owe any taxes on that property.
