Frequently Asked Questions
The Kenton County Sheriff’s Office will cease tax bill collections end of business day, April 15th (if the 15th of April falls on a weekend then it closes on the next business day). Unpaid tax bills are then turned over to the Kenton County Clerk’s Office for additional collection efforts that will result in added penalties and fees.
If the tax bill is not paid to the County Clerk by the time of their annual tax sale in July the tax bill may be sold to a third party. Substantial additional amounts will be due in order to redeem the outstanding taxes.
