Overton County residents recently received notice from County Property Assessor Cara Boone of their potential property tax increase because of a reappraisal of property.
The reappraisal process is required by the State of Tennessee for all counties every four to six years. Overton County is on a five-year schedule, with this year being the year for reappraisal. The last state mandated county-wide reappraisal was completed in 2015.
According to the Overton County Property Assessor’s office, the goal of reappraisal is to simply reestablish market value.
Many commissioners have received phone calls from residents concerning how or why their taxes may be increased due to the reappraisal.
Boone did not answer questions directly and referred to a previous notice that had recently been published.
