Paducah Finance Department Reminds Property Owners of Online Payment Option

Date of Release: 
October 19, 2023

The Paducah Finance Department reminds property owners of the online option to view and pay real estate bills. The online option, which was launched last year, allows the payment of a real estate bill using a credit or debit card. 

City of Paducah real estate bills were mailed late last week with payments due November 30 without penalty or interest. If a property owner does not receive the real estate tax bill within the next few days, please email the Finance Department at

(Note: Effective April 29, 2024, the service charge is 3.75 percent with a $2.50 minimum per transaction.) In addition to the online option, 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.

In September, the Paducah Board of Commissioners voted for the second year in a row to LOWER Paducah's property tax rate from 26.5 to 25.6 cents per $100 of assessed value.

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.
