Here are some Frequently Asked Questions regarding making payments in person, online and general tax bill questions.

Tennessee law does not require the mailing of tax notices indicating the amount of taxes due. Owners of property are presumed to know that taxes are due without personal notice. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the responsibility of payment, nor is this a reason for interest charges to be dismissed if the tax bill becomes delinquent. (CTAS-1573), T.C.A. § 67-5-2101

Tax Statements are mailed in October each year. Property tax bills are mailed to the owner on record.  New owners should contact their title company or review their closing statement to determine who is responsible for paying the taxes.

On the first day of each month beginning March 1, interest of 1.5 percent (18 percent annually) is added to your base tax amount.

Any tax payment transmitted by U.S. mail is deemed received on the date on the postmark, but not all items are postmarked by the United States Postal Service. If the Post Office fails to postmark your payment, it is considered paid on the date received by our office. This applies even if you mail your payment on time. For mail-in payments, office meter dates are not accepted. 

Payments made on the Trustee's website are recognized by the county as paid on the date of the online transaction. Payments made utilizing your bank's online bill pay service are posted as of the date received.

The taxes that become payable in October cover the current calendar year.

You may contact the Trustee’s Office at 931-589-2313 or the Perry County Accessors Office at 931-589-2277 to get this resolved.
