The Assessor of Property’s office is responsible for identifying and valuing all taxable property within Campbell County. The Assessor’s office processes all recorded documents that transfer property, map new property, and update ownership and address information. Additional responsibilities include measuring new constructions, processing personal property forms, processing mobile home park forms, and maintaining greenbelt records. Reappraisals are required by state law every five years with the last one occurring in 2019 and the next one scheduled for 2024.

You can obtain this information by contacting the Assessor’s office, or you can view your property record online.
How are the Assessor’s office and Trustee’s office related?
The Assessor is responsible for estimating the fair market value of your home or other property, while the Trustee is responsible for billing and collection of property taxes.
What kinds of property are taxable?
Tennessee state law (TCA § 67-5-101) states that all property, real and personal, shall be assessed for taxation for state, county, and municipal purposes, except such as is declared exempt. The two types of property that shall be assessed and taxed are:
- Real property, otherwise known as real estate, which includes land and improvements attached to the land such as houses, mobile homes, and outbuildings.
- Personal property, which is an asset used in the operation of a business or industry such as: machinery, equipment, signs, furniture, and fixtures. Privately-owned vehicles, household goods, furniture, and personal effects are currently exempt from personal property tax.
How is the value of real property determined?
In the State of Tennessee, assessment for tax purposes means establishing the full market value of land and its improvements. There are three approaches that may be used to determine real property value: market, cost, and income.
How is the value of personal property determined?
Self-reporting asset listing forms are mailed to the taxpayer each January. The business owner completes these forms by listing all equipment (owned or leased) being used to operate the business or industry. The age and cost of the equipment will be used to establish the appraised value. These forms should be returned to the Assessor’s office by March 1.
How am I notified of changes in my property’s value?
Each time your property is revalued for tax purposes, you will receive an assessment change notice in the mail. This shows both the previous and new property values. This assessment change notice is NOT a bill.
Is property valued at full market value?
In a reappraisal year, property is valued at full market value. Values do not change between appraisal years unless a physical change is made to the property. Reappraisals occur every 4 to 5 years.
What determines the amount of property tax?
Property tax is calculated by taking the assessed value per hundred multiplied by the property tax rate to equal the annual property tax bill. This may not be the same number every year because the costs to operate our local government determine how much property tax the county will need.
What is the appeal process?
To discuss your property’s value, you should contact the Assessor’s office. If a taxpayer decides to appeal the property value, an appointment may be made through the Assessor’s office. To appeal before the Campbell County Board of Equalization, contact the Assessor’s office. This board meets in June annually.
