Taylor County is a county located in the U.S. state of Kentucky. As of 2000, the population was 22,927. Its county seat is Campbellsville[1]. The county is named for President Zachary Taylor, who served from 1849 to 1850.

It is represented in the Kentucky House of Representatives by the Republican John "Bam" Carney, an educator. Carney in 2009 succeeded fellow Republican Russ Mobley, a retired associate professor of theatre arts at Campbellsville University, in the position.
