2013 Thomson-Reuters Outstanding Jurisdiction Award Recipient
The Property Assessor’s office appraisal personnel recently completed the 2013 quadrennial reappraisal of all taxable real estate in Knox County. There are over 190,000 parcels of real property and the task was accomplished by our in-house staff with enthusiasm and diligence. Notices of the new classifications and values were mailed to property owners in April, 2013 with an effective date of January 1, 2013. The pro-rate values reflecting changes to improvements that were substantially completed or demolished between January 1 and September 1 of 2013 was completed recently. Assessment Change Notices reflecting the change of improvement value were mailed to the owner of record the first week of September, 2013. The adjusted values are reflected on this site with a posting change reason including the words "Prorate". If you have any questions, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FYI: The values appearing on this site are "appraised" values The Knox County Commission recently adopted the Certified Property Tax Rate of $2.32 per $100 of Assessed Value as a result of the recent 2013 Reappraisal. The City of Knoxville Council also adopted a Certified Property Tax Rate of $2.3857 per $100 of Assessed Value for properties in their jurisdiction. Properties in the city pay both city and county property tax. The property tax rates are applied to each $100 of an "assessed" value. Residential/Farm properties are assessed at 25% of their appraised values. Commercial/Industrial properties are assessed at 40% of their appraised values. Some properties contain more than one classification of property, i.e. a cellular tower site existing on a farm property may have 1.00 acre assigned a value that is commercially assessed. Again, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office.
