The Office of Property Valuation has informed our office that an error was found in the valuation of vehicles 25 years or older. The vehicle values that were identified with an incorrect value have since been corrected to their fair cash value. Unfortunately, the vehicle renewal notices for January and February will reflect the incorrect value for these vehicles.

Please know the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office is only responsible for the collection of these taxes. The values assessed and placed into the computer system and ultimately printed onto the renewal notices are the responsibility of the Office of Property Valuation, Motor Vehicle Tax Branch. If you have any questions regarding your tax bill, you may contact that office directly at 502.564.8180.
