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.

How tax bills are calculated

The face value amount of your tax bill is determined by taking the assessed value of your property, less any exemptions, and multiplying this value by the tax rate for the applicable taxing districts or property type.
