Appeal to the State Board of Equalization

 

FILING A PROPERTY TAX APPEAL ON-LINE

Do not submit an appeal to the State Board of Equalization until you have first appealed to the county board of equalization which meets in May or June each year. Contact the assessor's office to appeal to the county board of equalization. 

Filing a property tax appeal on-line is a convenient means to meet the deadline for a state appeal but it does not excuse the legal necessity of sworn and written documentation of your claim prior to a hearing. The form for filing a property tax appeal may be submitted on-line by providing the information below (* denotes required field). 

Costs of processing and hearing the appeal

The state does not impose a property tax, and part of the state’s cost of processing and hearing local property tax appeals is borne by those pursuing the appeal. No more than $7 of the cost fee is for processing and is nonrefundable. Hearing costs (from $30 to $120, proportionate to the value of the property) are refundable if the appeal is withdrawn or settled prior to a hearing or if the taxpayer prevails in the appeal. You will be billed for these fees after we receive your appeal and before your appeal hearing. For more information, go to www.comptroller.tn.gov/SBOE/sbappeal.asp 

Any taxpayer, assessor of property, or taxing jurisdiction who desires to appeal to the State Board from action taken by the County Board of Equalization must do so before August 1 of the tax year for which the appeal is made or 45 days from the date of the County Board of Equalization’s notice, whichever is later.
