Welcome to the Floyd Sheriff's Office Property Tax Search page.
The County tax bills are due and payable starting November 1st of each year. If you do not receive your bill before or during the first week of November, please contact the Sheriff’s Office. When mailing your payment, please include the payment stub portion of your tax bill or put the tax bill number on your check. If you wish to have a paid receipt returned to you, please enclose a self–addressed, stamped envelope.
The following are the collection dates:
2% Discount - Oct. 1st - Oct. 31st
Face Amount - Nov. 1st - Dec. 31st
5% Penalty - Jan. 1st- Jan 31st, 2021
21% Penalty - Feb. 1st - April 15th, 2021
All delinquent tax bills will be transferred to the County Clerk’s Office as of the close of business on April 15, 2021. In addition to the penalties and fees that are applied by the Sheriff’s Office all payments made in the County Clerk’s Office are subject to a 20% County Attorney’s Fee, a 10% County Clerk’s Fee and interest at 1% per month. The delinquency is also subject to being sold to a Third Party Collector in the summer of 2021.
WHY DID I RECEIVE THIS BILL?
Tax bills for personal property are based on tangible and intangible personal property tax returns you have filed with the State Revenue Cabinet or the Property Valuation Administrator's Office.
I THOUGHT MY MORTGAGE COMPANY TOOK CARE OF THIS / WHY DID I GET THIS BILL?
In the past, you may not have known the amount of tax due, or which districts were taxing your property. Again this year, all real estate property owners will receive a copy of the notice, even if a mortgage company handles payment, so you can see how your tax was calculated and where your tax dollars go.
WHAT IF I BOUGHT OR SOLD THE PROPERTY DURING THE YEAR?
The seller usually pays a pro-rated tax during closing for the portion of the year they owned the property. The buyer is then responsible to pay the entire tax amount when billed. If you are in doubt, refer to your closing settlement statement.
AM I RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING THIS BILL?
Yes. The property owner is legally responsible for ensuring that the tax bill is paid. However, if there is a notice on your bill that your mortgage company will be paying the taxes, you may assume that the mortgage company will use your escrow account to pay the tax. If you are unsure, call them.
WHAT PAYMENT METHODS ARE AVAILABLE?
You may pay your bill by cash, check, money order or with a credit card. Make your check or money order payable to: Floyd County Sheriff's Office. Include the bill number, (shown on your bill), on your check or money order. * PLEASE DO NOT SEND CASH THROUGH THE MAIL.
WHEN IS MY PAYMENT DUE?
There is a schedule at the top right of your tax bill, and on your payment stub, showing the amount that is due, depending on the date your payment is received. As you can see, if your payment is received in the Sheriff's Office by the earliest date shown, you will receive a 2 percent discount. Please note that the later you wait to pay, the higher the amount due.
