Sevier County Board of Equilizations

Sevier County Board of Equalization

The Board of Equalization is made up of the members of the Sevier County Commission so it is not open for appointment and they are tasked with hearing appeals of the property owner’s dispute of the assessed value of property. In Sevier County the Commission has chosen to abnegate this responsibility to a nonbiased arbitrator who hears the property owner's appeal and make a decision.  Hearings are to be held on an individual basis consistent with property tax policies established by law.

The arbitrator hears appeals concerning the numerous types of determinations including: changes to real and personal property valuations; denials of senior citizen/disabled exemptions; denials of home improvement exemptions; decisions regarding historic property; forest land classification determinations; current use determinations; destroyed property determinations; and claims for either real or personal property tax exemptions.
