In 2012 this office migrated from an antiquated appraisal system to GRM/ProVal created by one of the world’s leading provider of computer assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) systems; Manatron now Thomson Reuters. While this process hasn’t been without its problems, it is a much better system for tracking property values, ownership, and providing services to taxpayers and other users. Work began in 2010 converting the data from the legacy system, and we went live with Manatron in December 2011 producing the 2012 assessment rolls for Knox County and the City of Knoxville.
The Property Assessor’s office appraisal personnel have just 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. These values were developed utilizing the three recognized approaches to value (cost, comparable sales, and income) with models developed by mass appraisal techniques.
WHAT’S NEW!! I am proud to present one of the enhancements offered by our CAMA system. The property look-up link above will direct the user to our E-Gov site that lists the property values on the subject property since the last revaluation in 2009, along with a listing of the property characteristics of the land and improvements. The search window allows the user to search in many different ways to locate real property in Knox County. We realize that some data appearing on the property records may be incorrect from the conversion project and we invite your comments. Please send them to our office email at email@example.com or call and inform our staff at (865) 215-2360. We are placing this data on the World Wide Web as a service to the Knox County taxpayers and many others interested in property values and strive to enhance the accuracy of the data by your comments.
Thank you for allowing me to serve you as your Property Assessor,
