The City's current property tax rate is $1.23 per 100 assessment.
Tax bills for the current calendar year are mailed in October of each year. Tennessee law does not require the mailing of tax notices. 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 penalty and interest charges to be canceled if the tax bill becomes delinquent.
The Montgomery County Property Assessor sends the City a tax file with every owner on record, meaning the person who owned the property on January 1st of that year. The City then generates tax bills based on the file that the Montgomery County Property Assessor sends. We encourage owners of properties to always check their closing documents to see who is responsible for the payment of the taxes. Regardless of who is responsible for paying the taxes, the property can still be ultimately sold at a tax auction if the taxes remain delinquent and unpaid.
Beginning March 1st, taxes will be considered delinquent and will start to accrue monthly interest at a rate of 1.5% per month, or 18% annually. This amount is added to the tax bill.

Once the taxes have been turned over to the tax attorney, additional fees will apply; the delinquent tax payments will be accepted at the: Office of the Clerk and Master, Montgomery Chancery Court2 Millenium Plaza Number 101Clarksville, TN 37040Phone: 931-648-5703

It is the practice of the Finance and Revenue Department to refund any overpayment to the party to pay the taxes second, or last. For example if your mortgage company sends us payment for your taxes in December and you mail a payment in February, your money will be refunded to you.
