How To Calculate Your Property Taxes

Property taxes in Tennessee are calculated utilizing the following four components:

  1. APPRAISED VALUE
  2. ASSESSMENT RATIO
  3. ASSESSED VALUE
  4. TAX RATE

The APPRAISED VALUE for each taxable property in a county is determined by the county property assessor.

The ASSESSMENT RATIO for the different classes of property is established by state law (residential and farm @ 25% of appraised value, commercial/industrial @ 40% of appraised value).

The ASSESSED VALUE is calculated by multiplying the appraised value by the assessment ratio.

The TAX RATE for each county is set by the county commission based on the amount of monies budgeted to fund the provided services. These tax rates vary depending on the level of services provided and the total value of the county’s tax base.

To calculate the tax on your property, assume you have a house with an APPRAISED VALUE of $100,000. The ASSESSED VALUE is $25,000 (25% of $100,000), and the TAX RATE has been set by your county commission at $3.20 per hundred of assessed value. To figure the tax simply multiply the assessed value ($25,000) by the tax rate (3.20 per hundred dollars assessed).


$25,000 / 100 = 250 x $3.20 = $800.00

               or

    ($25,000 x .03200 = $800.00)

for a tax bill of $800.00
