Final reappraisal appeal deadline Friday (June 19)

The final reappraisal appeal deadline for the recent Davidson County property reassessment is this Friday, June 19. If you have not appealed and are interested in doing so, please call
(615) 862-6059 as soon as possible. Property owners can appeal even if they did not appeal during the first phase of the appeal process, which ended in May.

The reappraisal appeals process works in 3 phases:
Phase 1 - Informal Review by the staff at the Property Assessor's office is complete. Deadline for informal review of property appraisals was May 15. Notices following informal review were mailed to property owners from May 17-June 3. Any property owner may go on to Phase 2, regardless of participation in the Phase 1 informal review process.

Phase 2 – Formal Review: The deadline is Friday, June 19. Please call the Property Assessor's office as soon as possible to make your appointment.

Following the informal review period, property owners that are dissatisfied with the Property Assessor's informal review results, or those that missed the informal review period altogether, may appeal to the Metro Board of Equalization by Friday, June 19. The Metro Board of Equalization is composed of 5 citizen members appointed by the Mayor's office, and is independent of the Property Assessor's office. Property owners may go before the Metro Board of Equalization for a full hearing or may choose to present facts to a Hearing Officer on one-on-one basis. Hearing Officers are private sector Realtors and appraisers that hear property owner's cases and present recommendations to the Metro Board of Equalization. Hearing Officers have no stake in the results and make recommendations based on the facts presented by the property owner and property sales data. Notification of the Metro Board of Equalization decisions will be mailed to property owners by early August. Deadline for Phase 2 reappraisal review is Friday, JUNE 19. After June 19, by state law, jurisdiction over property values shifts to the state.

Phase 3 - State Board of Equalization. For property owners that are dissatisfied with the Property Assessor's informal review system, as well as the findings of the Hearing Officer and Metro Board of Equalization (Deadline is June 19 for Phase 2), you may appeal to the State Board of Equalization. Property owners must appeal to the State Board within 45 days of receipt of the Metro Board of Equalization notification by US mail. Please see www.padctn.com for more information regarding the State Board of Equalization.
