The owner of a vehicle as of January 1st of each tax year is responsible for the tax for that year. If at the time of transfer the property tax has not been paid 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 of tax due. This does not relinquished responsibility to pay property tax timely.
