Tennessee Property Tax Rates

Property taxes are collected on a county level, and each county in Tennessee has its own method of assessing and collecting taxes. As a result, it's not possible to provide a single property tax rate that applies uniformly to all properties in Tennessee.

The statistics provided here are state-wide. For more localized statistics, you can find your county in the Tennessee property tax map or county list found on this page.
