Old Sheriff Department

What We Do: Tax Collection

It is the responsibility of the Oldham County Sheriff's office to collect property taxes for the State, the County, School Districts and sometimes, cities (if the Sheriff has contracted with each of these entities for this service).  In addition, almost every Sheriff's office collects taxes for some other special taxing district or special function such as fire protection districts, libraries, etc.

Please be aware that in no way does the Sheriff's office ever assess any value on property in the county.  If you feel your tax bill is incorrect, you should contact the Oldham County Property Valuation Administration at (502) 222-9320.  This authority is responsible for all property valuation and tax assessment in Oldham County.

The tax bill you receive from the Sheriff's office is the amount assessed by the Oldham County Property Valuation Administration. They determine the amount owed on all real estate within Oldham County.  My office is responsible for collecting taxes for 28 districts throughout Oldham County. Tax bills are mailed out on October 1st each year and your tax bill will include the following important information:

  •  When the taxes are due
  •  What to do to avoid penalties
  •  What to do if your taxes are paid by your mortgage company
  •  How you can pay your tax bill

Check out our Frequently Asked Questions about taxes if you need more information.
