2010 Appeals to the Shelby County Board of Equalization

2010 appeals acceptance period is May 1, 2010 until June 30, 2010

If you disagree with the Assessor’s valuation of your property, you have the right to file an appeal with the Shelby County Board of Equalization (SCBoE).

The SCBoE is an independent body that meets on the grounds of Shelby County’s East Complex and hears disputes from property owners who do not agree with the Assessor’s values. The SCBoE appoints hearing officers to assist in these hearings. The hearing officers will consider all evidence presented by both the property owner and the Assessor’s staff in determining the property’s market value.

Property owners are encouraged to present evidence at their hearing, which will support their opinion of value. Examples of relevant evidence include:

  • 2009 sales prices of similar properties within the immediate area. (The sales dates of comparable sales should be prior to January 1, 2010.)
  • A recent private appraisal.
  • Photos showing the property’s condition.
  • Income and expense information for commercial properties.
  • Any other information that will assist in analyzing the property’s market value.

The SCBoE will accept 2010 appeals beginning May 1 until the end of its regular session on June 30, 2010. Failure to timely file a 2010 appeal with the SCBoE may result in the assessed value becoming final without further right of appeal.

For more information and forms required for filing an appeal, please contact the SCBoE at 901-379-7160. The SCBoE does not currently provide appeals forms online or in a downloaded format.
