Inspection Period For the Property Tax Assessment Roll The Bath County real property tax roll will opened for inspection from July 8 through July 22. Under the supervision of the property valuation administrator or one of the deputies, any person may inspect the tax roll. This is the January 1, 2013 assessment on which state, county, and school taxes for 2013 will be due about November 1,2013. The tax roll is in the office of the property valuation administrator in the county courthouse and may be inspected between the hours of Monday (8:00 - 5:00) and Tuesday through Friday (8:00 - 4:00) Any taxpayer desiring to appeal an assessment on real property made by the PVA must first request a conference with the PVA or a designated deputy. The conference may be held prior to or during the inspection period. The taxpayer still aggrieved by an assessment on real property, after the con- ference with the PVA or designated deputy, may appeal to the county board of assessment appeals. The taxpayer can appeal his assessment by filing in person or sending a letter or other written petition stating the reasons for appeal, identifying the property and stating the taxpayer's opinion of the fair cash value of the property. The appeal must be filed with the county clerk's office no later than one work day following the conclusion of the inspection period. A taxpayer failing to appeal to the county board of assessment appeals, or fail- ing to appear before the board, either in person or by designated representa- tive, will not be eligible to appeal directly to the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals. Appeals of personal property assessments shall not be made to the county board of assessment appeals. Personal property taxpayers shall be served notice under the provisions of KRS 132.450(4) and shall have the protest and appeal rights granted under the provisions of KRS 131.110. The following steps should be taken when a taxpayer does not agree with the assessed value of a personal property as determined by the property valuation administrator. (1) He must list under protest (for certification) what he believes to be the fair cash value of his property. (2) He must file a written protest directly with the Department of Revenue, Of- rice of Property Valuation within 30 days from the date of the notice of assess- ment. (3) This protest must be in accordance with KRS 131.110. (4) The final decision of the Department of Revenue may be appealed to the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals. Interim Property Melany K.
