T​he owner of a vehicle on January 1 of each year will be responsible for the tax for that year. If the property tax has not been paid at the time of transfer, the seller will be responsible for that tax.

To avoid delinquent taxes, it is recommended that the seller pay taxes at the time of transfer. If they do not do this at the time of transfer, the seller will be sent notification by the KY Revenue Cabinet that taxes are owed.
