Property Tax

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is the primary property tax collector for state, metro, Louisville district, school, fire, and other special district taxes. We collect approximately 790 million dollars per year, from over 300 thousand tax payers, for 20 different taxing jurisdictions.

"Dear Citizen,
I am very proud of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and of the many services we provide our community. Our Tax Office is one of the areas of service of which I am most proud. Staffed with professional personnel, this office will assist you with any questions you might have concerning payment of your property taxes.

Sincerely, Col. John Aubrey, Sheriff

Property Tax Information

Every year tax bills are mailed in November. If you do not receive a tax bill in the mail by the second week of November, please contact our office at 502-574-5479 and request a duplicate bill to be sent to you. You may also print a copy of your tax bill by using the Property Tax Search and Payment.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve you of your obligation to pay your tax bill nor does it waive the penalties or fees for late payment.
