A Message from John A. Burke, PVA


I have been employed with the Scott County PVA office for the past ten years and six years of that as the Chief Deputy. Before that I was a realtor for almost 10 years. This makes me very knowledgeable and confident when it comes to property values and the market here in our county.

As your new PVA it will be my honor to continue to serve my community as I have done in the past. I promise to continue with free access to our website for transparency. My team and I at the PVA office will always provide prompt and courteous service to the citizens of Scott County. To inform and educate the public of their taxpayer rights, and assess all property fair and equitably.

My goals moving forward, will be to continue training and education for myself and for the PVA staff to better meet the needs of the community, as well as to stay up to date with technology to run the office efficiently, while meeting all State deadlines.

Thank you,

John A. Burke

2022 Tax Bills

The Scott County Sheriff’s office and City of Georgetown mailed the 2022 tax bills on October 31st. Stamping Ground and Sadieville mailed their bills earlier in October. If you did not receive your property tax bill  please contact our office at 502-863-7885 to verify your property tax bill mailing address.

Keep in mind that your tax bill is calculated using your 2022 assessed value. Your assessed value is based upon sales activity thru the end of 2021. Assessed values follow market prices. Sales activity occurring now will be considered for your 2023 assessment. The median residential sale price increased 14% in 2021 and increased 23% in two years. (CLICK FOR MEDIAN HISTORY). Per Bluegrass Realtors thru September, the median sale price of a single family home in Scott County is $285,000 or 8.0% greater than September, last year. 


To promote better understanding of the Property Tax Process , the Kentucky Department of Revenue has developed a nice property tax website at  https://revenue.ky.gov/Property

It explains the property tax process, the tax calendar, assessments, tax rates and the billing process.

Check it out. I think you will find it informative. And remember your PVA staff is available to help with any property tax questions you may have too.

We are here Monday thru Friday 8:30-4:30
