Welcome to the
Jefferson County Clerk's
Delinquent Tax Website
TaxMaster.net is the application we use to store and track all delinquent taxes. It will include unpaid bills, paid bills, and bills that have been sold to 3rd parties. There is a link to the TaxMaster Instructions document located on this page that will help answer some of your questions. In the future we will add a FAQ document.
If you have any questions or would like training on TaxMaster.net, please contact the office at 502-574-6016 or by email to SHale@JeffersonCountyClerk.org..
IMPORTANT NOTICE ON TAX LIENS
Customers should be aware that the information contained in these files is produced by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office pertaining to tax claims generating liens under KRS 134.420 (1).
These tax claims are in some instances not the final determination of tax liability for a tax year, and are subject to ongoing review, such as exoneration by the county attorney.
Customers should take notice of special designations in these files on certain parcels that the clerk’s office uses to identify claims that may have an extra degree of complication. Complete information is available at the Professional License and Delinquent Tax Department in Room 100A of Metro Hall at 527 W. Jefferson Street, Louisville, KY 40202.
In a few instances, there is a possibility a search of parcel for tax claims conducted several months previously may be superseded. It is recommended that a tax claims search be conducted in the same time period as a real estate closing to minimize any potential problems or miscalculations.
