Back Tax Bills Arriving for Some Property Owners
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - Back tax bills for some McCracken County property owners have started arriving in the mail.

McCracken County PVA Bill Dunn told West Kentucky Star that some property owners that owned land did not inform the PVA office that they built a home or business, and some have been able to continue paying property taxes for only the land’s value instead of the combined larger value with structures. 

Dunn said his office has found over 40 properties like this so far, and has only assessed one or two of the nine districts in the county, so there could be many more. He said that there is an increased value of $10 million with these properties, which will result in higher property taxes being collected.

He also said that former PVA Nancy Bock had not been assessing properties within the County on a regular basis, and in some cases, not at all. 

When he took office, he realized his staff was way behind what state law requires them to do, and he said the office is also understaffed.

Dunn says some city residents have begun getting property tax bills, and a few have received statements for several previous years as well. 

He said the county is still working on getting their statements printed, and hinted that they may provide payment plans for some who have to pay taxes for multiple years.
