Important Notice on Travel Trailers & Campers
Effective July 1, 2023, all motor homes, travel and fifth-wheel trailers, and pull-behind and pop-up campers will be subject to Kentucky’s 6 percent motor vehicle usage tax. That means when any recreational vehicle is sold, the buyer will pay the 6 percent at the time of transfer. The change is due to state legislation enacted this year.
For more information, contact the Motor Vehicle Department at (270) 685-8434 Ext. 1.
