Property Valuation Administrator Darlene M. Plummer
The Commonwealth of Kentucky adopted the title Property Valuation Administrator (PVA) in place of the more commonly used county tax commissioner or tax assessor. Each of the 120 Kentucky counties has a PVA Office with a locally elected PVA. The PVA Office is required to administrate "ad valorem" taxes. Ad valorem is Latin for "according to value," which means that taxes are based on the value of the property.
