Property Taxes

Assessment and Collection Dates

Kentucky property tax law establishes the assessment date of all property as January 1st of each year. All property assessment information is processed and maintained solely by the Property Valuation Office of each county and the Kentucky Department of Revenue. Further detailed information regarding assessments and property records in Graves County can be found at www.qpublic.net/ky/grave.

Unless otherwise advised, Graves County property taxes become due and payable annually to the Graves County Sheriff's Office beginning November 1 of the year for which they are assessed. The following collection dates apply:

All delinquent tax bills for the preceding year not paid to the Sheriff by the close of business on April 15 will be transferred to the Graves County Clerk for further collection proceedings. After this date, additional penalties and interest will be assessed to these unpaid tax bills. No prior-year taxes can be collected by the Sheriff's Office after the April 15 transfer.

Address Changes and Duplicate Bill Requests

Tax bill address information is maintained by the Graves County Property Valuation (PVA) Office and cannot be altered by the Graves County Sheriff. If you need to make permanent changes to your property tax mailing address, please fill out the Property Valuation Office's address change form at http://qpublic5.qpublic.net/ky_graves_change.php.

Due to time restraints in preparing the county tax roll, address changes made after June of the tax year will not be reflected on the tax bills printed for that year. In these instances, a duplicate tax bill with updated address information should be requested from the Property Valuation Office, and the replacement tax bill will be provided as soon as it becomes available. Our office also recommends that anyone who has not received their expected tax bill by October 10th of the tax year to request a duplicate tax bill. Duplicate tax bills can be mailed, faxed, or emailed at any time during the collection period upon request. PLEASE NOTE: A request for a duplicate tax bill to be sent to an alternate address DOES NOT constitute a permanent change of address for future tax bill mailings.

Hours of Operation and Payment Options

Tax payments can be submitted by mail or in person at our office Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM of each week during the collection period. Payments can be made by cash or check.
