Tax Information:




If you are paying on your property with a mortgage, your taxes might be escrowed.  The Sheriff’s Office ONLY sends your tax bill to the property owner.  We cannot send it to your mortgage company.  Please check with your mortgage company before sending your payment to the Sheriff. Many times mortgage companies know that the taxes are due and they will request the bill directly from the Sheriff’s Office and pay it without you knowing it.  Other mortgage companies may require you to mail or FAX your bill. 




The Property Valuation Administrator (PVA) is responsible for the assessment of your property, the address of your property, the mailing address, and name changes on your tax bill and exemptions.  The Sheriff’s role is ONLY to collect the tax.  

For additional information see:

Questions regarding the assessed value of your property should be addressed to the PVA Office in the Lawrence County Administration building, 122 South Main Street Louisa, KY 41230 or call Ph: (606) 638-4743.

Questions and change of address regarding mineral taxes need to be directed to the Department of Revenue. (502) 564-8334



Please make any inquiries before making a payment.
