City of Florence Tax Rates
The below information comes from Ordinance Number O-12-2016 and is information regarding the current year’s property tax rate. If you have any questions, please contact the Finance Department at 859-647-5413.
The basic tax levied for General Fund purposes is a tax of eighteen and two-tenths cents ($0.182) per one hundred dollars of value on real property and a tax of twenty-eight and four-tenths cents ($0.284) per one hundred dollars of value on personal property (except for motor vehicles and watercraft) and upon all franchises taxable by the City.
In addition, this Ordinance levies a tax in the amount of six and four-tenths cents ($.064) per one hundred dollars of value upon all real and personal property (except for motor vehicles and watercraft) and upon all franchises taxable by the City for the purpose of payment of the City's obligations for current service costs for police and firemen in the County Employees' Retirement System.
All of the above mentioned taxes are due and payable upon first passage and publication of this ordinance. A discount of two percent (2%) is allowed for any such taxes paid in full before November 1, 2016. Any such taxes remaining unpaid after January 1, 2017, are subject to a penalty of twelve percent (12%) plus interest in the amount unpaid at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum from January 1, 2017, until paid.
The Ordinance also establishes the due date for the tax in the amount of twenty-five thousandths of one percent (0.025%) on all financial institutions measured by deposits in such institutions located in the City. This tax was levied by Ordinance No. O-18-96, pursuant to the Bank Franchise and Local Deposit Tax Act of the 1996 Kentucky General Assembly. This tax replaced the former bank shares tax which was the method by which Kentucky cities taxes financial institutions prior to the enactment of the Bank Franchise and Local Deposit Tax Act. A two percent (2%) discount is allowed against the tax on bank deposits if paid before December 31, 2016. Any such taxes paid after January 31, 2017 will be subject to a penalty of twelve percent (12%) plus interest in the unpaid amount at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum from January 31, 2017, until paid.
