 The property tax rate is approximately $0.114 per $100 of assessed property value based upon the Jefferson County assessment. Click here for detailed Tax Information


In addition to property tax revenue, funds are also accrued by the City from the State’s Municipal Aid Road Fund. MARF is derived from a percentage of the taxes that we all pay on gasoline and have been earmarked for future use in road repair and similar endeavors. Investments maintained by the City yield sufficient return to provide us with a financial structure allowing the completion of special projects, such as paving of Richlawn’s streets, without raising taxes or imposing special assessments.

A 5% insurance premium tax is charged and collected by your insurance company on auto, home and life insurance policies. PLEASE BE SURE TO INFORM YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY/AGENT THAT YOU LIVE IN THE CITY OF RICHLAWN SO YOUR TAX DOLLARS COME BACK TO RICHLAWN AND NOT THE CITY OF LOUISVILLE.

Included in the property tax is weekly curbside collection of solid waste and every other week for recyclables.
