Sample Property Tax Report for a Shelby County, TN property


The Property Assessment Division of the State Controller's Office oversees the process of assessing all real property in the State of Tennessee.

Market Value

Market Value is defined as the most probable price which a property should bring in a competitive and open market under all conditions requisite to a fair sale, the buyer and seller each acting prudently and knowledgeably, and assuming the price is not affected by undue stimulus.

Land value $45,000
Building value + $144,100
Market value = $189,100
Assessed Value

Assessment is the basis upon which taxing authorities tax a property. The assessed value is calculated by multiplying the appraise value by the assessment ratio. In Shelby County there are different assessment ratios depending on the property's calssification: 25% for residential and agricultural/farm, 40% for commercial/industrial, 55% for public utility and 0% for exempted properties.

Land assessed value $11,250
Building assessed value + $36,025
Assessed value = $47,275
Exemptions And Taxable Value

The State of Tennesse offers taxpayers several types of exemptions,including for governmental property and cemeteries and for builduings used for religious, charitable, scientific and nonprofit educational purposes. Most non-governmental exemptions require a one-time application and approval by the State Board of Equalization, and there is a May 20 application deadline.

We have no information about whether any exemptions currently apply to this property. Therefore, the taxable value will be equal to the assessed value.
