Middle Tennessee has experienced dramatic growth in population since the last revaluation in 2018. The above “heat map” represents the median change by County Commission district in Rutherford County, which WGNS released last week.
The median increase in values between 2018 and 2022 for Rutherford County Tennessee is 44 percent! This is on par with increases seen in all major population centers in Tennessee recently.
What this means is that when the cities and county governments in Rutherford County calculate a revenue neutral tax rate for their jurisdictions; it will be record low value as well. Citizens should understand that these rates will produce revenue numbers from the tax base which are equivalent to the previous year’s tax levy. The tax burden is redistributed based upon the demand in the market for property types.
Assessment change notices will be arriving in mailboxes around May 10th. The Rutherford County Assessor of Property has a website address of RCPAtn.com/cboe. You can also call their office at 615-898-7750 if you have any questions.
