What happens when someone buys my delinquent tax bill?

The buyer receives a Certificate of Delinquency from the County Clerk and must abide by the requirements of KRS 134.490 (PDF), KRS 134.546 (PDF), and all other dictates of KRS Chapter 134. The buyer has fifty (50) days to give you notice he has purchased your tax bill. Payment must be sent directly to the buyer, along with the associated penalties and interest assessed by the buyer. Once you pay the buyer, the buyer sends a release to the County Clerk for recording. You may obtain a copy of the release from the County Clerk for a small fee, at:
20 N Main Street, Suite 206
Henderson County Courthouse
Henderson, KY 42420
