After a shorter than expected delay, property taxes for the county will be mailed out this Friday, August 17. Following the July 12 meeting of the Fayette County Board, it was expected that there may be an up to 60-day delay in tax bills being sent out due to an error that was found in the equalized assessed valuation for the county. Close to all of the school superintendents in the county were on hand for that meeting and asked for the delay so that the numbers could be corrected and asked that they have a chance to possible correct their tax levy amounts following correction of the EAV. At that time, County Consultant Kat Lange of Bellweather explained that there was an original error in the 2016 tax cycle. Lange explained that there was then an error found in the fix for the original EAV error and with that essentially rolling back the tax cycle, they were probably realistically looking at 60 days to complete the fixing of the EAV numbers and to allow the schools to amend their levies. However, it was announced by Fayette County Treasurer Rose Hoover late last week that the taxes will be mailed out this Friday, just 36 days following the county board meeting.
