Assessors of Property work under state law and regulations that require that all property be appraised at its market value as of January 1 of the tax year.   The Property Assessment Division of the State Comptroller's Office oversees the process.


The Assessor of Property's role in all this is simply to get an equitable appraisal in place so that all property owners are treated fairly. The Assessor of Property has no interest in making any appraisal higher or lower than it should be. As an association, the TNAAO fights to maintain a level playing field with uniformity for all property owners and to obtain the education, technology and latest training needed for Assessors of Property and their staffs to accomplish their work with the highest degree of professionalism.
