Time to Lower Your Nashville Property Taxes

Davidson County Property TaxesIt’s that time again. No, not time for your annual pre-holiday panic, but time to potentially save some dough on taxes by requesting a new appraisal for your Davidson County property. You have until the end of the year to request a review of your current property appraisal for the 2012 tax year. The Davidson County Assessor of Property makes it easy to request a reappraisal by giving you 3 avenues to inquire.

Who Should Request a New Appraisal

When the economy is faltering it’s time to scrutinize your property tax bill – it’s no secret that many Davidson County properties have lost value since their peak in 2006/2007. If you are an individual who has not requested a new appraisal since that time, you certainly are a prime candidate for a reduction in value. This reduction in appraised value will directly correlate to a reduction in your property taxes paid. If you are an individual who bought a pre-construction condo in downtown Nashville, you are also a prime candidate for a reduction.

An important aside: The Tax Collector collects property taxes that fund the activities of government for the county, including the school system. The Tax Collector does not determine how much to collect. The County Assessor determines the value of a parcel and gives the value information to the County Auditor-Controller, who applies the tax rates and special assessments to the tax bill. The Auditor-Controller then charges the Tax Collector with the collection of the tax bill.
