The Jeffersontown Revenue Department annually collects nearly $4.5 million in tax on real property with total assessed value of approximately $3.3 billion.
Real estate property tax bills are based on a property’s assessed value, as set by the Jefferson County property valuation administrator (PVA), and the real property tax rate levied by Jeffersontown’s city government.
The 2020 Jeffersontown real estate tax rate is $0.1401 per $100 of assessed value ($100,000 assessed value = $140.10 tax bill).
