What is the Madison County Property Tax?
Proceeds from the Madison County Personal Property Tax are used locally to fund school districts, public transport, infrastructure, and other municipal government projects. Property tax income is almost always used for local projects and services, and does not go to the federal or state budget.
Unlike other taxes which are restricted to an individual, the Madison County Property Tax is levied directly on the property. Unpaid property tax can lead to a property tax lien, which remains attached to the property's title and is the responsibility of the current owner of the property. Tax liens are not affected by transferring or selling the property, or even filing for bankruptcy. Property tax delinquency can result in additional fees and interest, which are also attached to the property title.
In cases of extreme property tax delinquency, the Madison County Tax Board may seize the delinquent property and offer it for sale at a public tax foreclosure auction, often at a price well under market value. Proceeds of the sale first go to pay the property's tax lien, and additional proceeds may be remitted to the original owner.
Madison County Homestead Exemption
For properties considered the primary residence of the taxpayer, a homestead exemption may exist. The Madison County Homestead Exemption can reduce the appraised valuation of a primary residence before calculating the property tax owed, resulting in a lower annual property tax rate for owner-occupied homes.
Getting a Homestead Exemption may also help protect your home from being repossessed in the case of a property tax lien due to unpaid Madison County property taxes or other types of other debt.
In most counties, you must specifically submit a homestead exemption application to your county tax assessor in order to enjoy the tax reduction and other benefits available. To get a copy of the Madison County Homestead Exemption Application, call the Madison County Assessor's Office and ask for details on the homestead exemption program. You can also ask about other exemptions that may exist for veterans, seniors, low-income families, or property used for certain purposes such as farmland or open space.
Madison County Property Tax Deduction
You can usually deduct % of your Madison County property taxes from your taxable income on your Federal Income Tax Return as an itemized deduction. Kentucky may also let you deduct some or all of your Madison County property taxes on your Kentucky income tax return.
