City Commission Votes Second Year in a Row to Reduce Property Tax Rate

Date of Release: 
September 28, 2023

The Paducah Board of Commissioners voted this week to LOWER Paducah's property tax rate from 26.5 cents to 25.6 cents per $100 of assessed value.

The graphic below shows how the real estate tax is calculated for property owners within the Paducah city limits. You need to know your property’s assessed value and your school district. Please note that the City government does NOT set the city or county school tax rates or assess a property's value. Property owners will receive a separate bill from the McCracken County Sheriff for County government and other agencies.

Property tax bills will be arriving around November 1. In addition to the online option of paying real estate bills using a credit or debit card, the City of Paducah accepts cash, check, credit, and debit card payments in person at City Hall located at 300 South 5th Street. Payments can be made over-the-phone as well by calling 270-444-8513. A 2.95 percent service charge will apply on credit and debit card payments. Payment types include Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. The City does not charge or retain this service charge. There is a $2.00 minimum per transaction.

Last year, the Board lowered Paducah's property tax rate from 27.1 to 26.5 cents per $100 of assessed value. Learn more including a history of the property tax rate by visiting Property Tax.
