Real Estate and Personal Property Taxes
The Treasury Division collects property taxes for the City itself and also for the Bowling Green Independent School System. The property values are determined by the Warren County Property Valuation Administrator. In Kentucky, property is valued at 100% of fair market value, as January 1 of each year.
Personal property includes business furniture, fixtures and inventory. Personal property taxes on vehicles and boats are collected by the Warren County Court Clerk at the time of registration and then remitted to the City.

The City normally mails approximately 20,000 property tax bills each year in the month of October and they are due in full by December 31 each year. Unpaid taxes are subject to foreclosure action being filed by the City after remaining unpaid six months past the due date.
Property taxes supply approximately 20% of the City's General Fund revenues. For estimates on property tax revenues, see the City's budget. For more information on Property Taxes, contact us at (270) 393-3000 voice, (270) 393-3636 fax, or e-mail us.
