GREAT NEWS FOR 2022 PROPERTY TAXES


Any structural changes to a home or property will increase your tax bill. A deck, a pool, a large shed, or any other permanent fixture added to your home is presumed to increase its value and in most cases, home owners are protected against property tax increases that are not approved by a court hearing.


Each county in Kentucky determines what the property tax will be for the towns and cities within the county limits. However, most counties in the state are limited by law on the increases that can be made to property taxes each year—at least without either a public hearing or a recall petition—which helps to keep the overall tax rate low in the state.


As you can see, now is a great time to pursue the search for your dream home as you will be welcomed with fair and relatively low property taxes in the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati areas.
