Blount County sent out the 2019 Property Assessment change notices.

The Blount County Property assessor's office is allowing property owners three days (4/15/2019 to 4/18/2019) to discuss the new values by calling the office (865-273-5879).

We received our notice on 4/15/2019 around 4 PM, thus we only have two days to contact the property assessor's office.

There are approximately 50,000 property owners in Blount County. It's a good thing most property owners will probably not call the property assessor's office since in the assigned time frame that would be 1,851 callers per hour.

What the heck is going on?

Our property increased by 20% since the last county appraisal 5 years ago. I don't think the increases can be sustained, but who knows.
