2018 Reappraisal of Rutherford County Property and Equalization Information

  Email   Print

2018 is a reappraisal year for Rutherford County. Many may not be familiar with the process and the reasons why it is done.

Every four years the Assessor's Office complies all the data they have collected the prior three years regarding sales and physical condition of property in Rutherford County. They equalize these values for taxation purposes because market values can change over time. Property Assessor Rob Mitchell stated in an email, "If we did not make these adjustments it would result in some property owners paying more property taxes than they should and others to pay less."

State law requires the taxing jurisdictions to calculate a revenue neutral Certified Tax Rate through their legislative body in a reappraisal year. This is the rate which will result in an equal amount of revenue being raised. However, some folks may see an increase and others a decrease in their taxes once this happens.

Still, you may call the Assessor's Office if you believe there may have been an error and discuss it with an appraiser. If the assessors office is unable to find a reason that would invalidate the value, they can assist you in setting an appointment to have an appeal heard before the County Board of Equalization in the first few weeks of June.
