UNDERSTANDING THE certified TAX RATE

Board of Equalization
County boards of equalization are authorized by law to receive and hear appeals of current year property tax assessments as fixed by the county assessor of property.  Generally, an assessment must be appealed to the county board of equalization to preserve the taxpayer's right to further appeal.  In general, a county board of equalization convenes its regular session on June 1st of each year (or the next business day if the 1st falls on Saturday or Sunday) and remains in session as necessary to complete the board's business for the maximum number of days allowed under Tenn. Code Ann. § 67-1-404.  However, a county may have an extended session, a special session of the county board, or set an alternate time by resolution or ordinance.
