Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide courteous, accurate and efficient services for the benefit of Kenton County and its citizens. In that effort, if there is information which may be of benefit to you that does not currently appear herein, please contact us via email at info.kentonpva@kentoncounty.org


The PVA is required by statute to “review/physically inspect” all real property in the county at least once every four years. As such, the county is separated into four sections of which one-fourth is reviewed each year. If any increase in your property assessment is made by PVA during this inspection period, you will receive written notice of the valuation change. Make sure you keep your mailing address we have on file current. Printed notices are generally mailed in early April. Additionally, you can view your current valuation at any time by searching on the above tab: Search Property Records. You can also call the PVA office and verify your current year valuation at: 859-392-1750.
Non-receipt of a written assessment notice change does not negate the assessment.

For 2020, areas under review include Crescent Springs/Villa Hills Fire, Crescent Springs,  Crestview Hills,  Edgewood,  Ft. Wright, Taylor Mill, Villa Hills.

Due to COVID-19, the statutory open inspection period is now July 6-20, 2020. All review requests/conferences must be held with the PVA Office on or before July 20.

Representatives of the PVA Field Team are in the following areas to capture up-to-date exterior pictures around your home: Fairview, Ryland, Ryland Heights, Kentonvale, Walton, Piner-Fiskburg, and other nearby areas. Field Team Members are equipped with PVA badges and business cards. Please call our office with any concerns.
