What Is A PVA

About the PVA

Subject to the direction, instruction, and supervision of The Dept. of Revenue, the Property Valuation Administrator must make the assessment of all property in the county, prepare property records, and perform other duties relating to assessment as may be described by law or by the Dept. of Revenue. (KRS 132.420)


The Harrison County PVA is a locally-elected official charged with assessing all property, both real and personal, that lies within Harrison County. 


There are some exceptions, such as public service companies, bank shares, tangible properties and vehicles; these values are set by the Kentucky Revenue Cabinet in Frankfort.
