Vehicle taxes are going up, unless you, and your Kentucky Legislators do something about it.

On January 6, the Kentucky Office of Property Valuation reported an “unprecedented rising value of most motor vehicles” *40% more than last year.* This means vehicle taxes are going up, significantly.

According to Kentucky’s Division of State Valuation, the value of a Kentucky vehicle usually increases 3% to 4% each year. Last year, the average value was up 11%.

This year, demand for new and used vehicles is high causing their value rise. When the value goes up, state leaders say, *so do your taxes*.

Unless you, and your Legislator do something about it.

The Kentucky Constitution governs property valuation. Lawmakers decide how to make this happen.

Tell your lawmaker to change Kentucky Revised Statutes KRS Chapter 138 to state that the assessed value of a motor vehicle, *cannot be increased year over year*. It should state, *the value assessment, outside of depreciation, can only occur when the vehicle title is transferred.*

You can stop this tax increase.

Change the Law! No Vehicle Tax Increase

It was with little effort and over a short time, that almost 500 citizens - the majority from Warren and neighboring counties - signed this petition asking you to change Kentucky Revised Statutes KRS Chapter 138 regarding how vehicles are assessed and taxed.

According to the Kentucky Office of Property Valuation notice earlier this month, used vehicles are worth 40% more in 2022, compared to 2021, even though they are a year older. Consequently, taxes will rise proportionally.

Since this news came to light, a few champions have taken up the cause, each with a different solution.

State Representative Steve Sheldon sponsored HB 6 and HB 261. Rep. Shawn McPherson also sponsored HB 261.

State Senators Mike Wilson and Max Wise sponsored SB 75.

These are acceptable, yet temporary solutions. We continue to advocate for:

• Changing the assessment method from using 85% of retail NADA book value to using 85% of NADA trade in value – presented in some proposals. • Changing the code to state, “The assessed value of a registered motor vehicle, cannot be increased annually.” Further it should state, “The assessment of value, outside of depreciation, can only occur when a vehicle’s title is transferred.” • Applying the value assessment to all registered motor vehicles, not just personal vehicles.

This is simple. This tax is extraordinarily burdensome, and it is time to do something about it.

One question remains for those who have not co-sponsored measures rectifying this situation -- where do you stand?

It’s time to take an easy win, and complete this piece of legislation.

Vehicle value and value assessment of sale. As the vehicle ages, it depreciates and maintenance costs rise, it becomes less valuable. And, in these trying times it, it would impact some of us elderly people on a fixed social security income.

Taxation without representation. No law abiding, tax paying citizen would have willingly agreed to this.
