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

{slider=Is the City Recorder required to mail tax notices?}

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


{slider=When are property tax bills mailed out?}

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.


{slider=What happens if I miss the tax payment deadline?}

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.


{slider=Is Postmark accepted?}

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 City's website are recognized by the city 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.


{slider=What time period do my annual taxes cover?}

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


{slider=My name and/or Address are incorrect.  What needs to be done?}

You may contact the City Recorders Office at 931-593-2285 or the Perry County Accessors Office at 931-589-2277 to get this resolved.


{slider=My mortgage company pays my taxes.  What do I do with this notice?}

Tax information should be forwarded to your mortgage company.


{slider=Can I make partial payments?}

We currently do not accept partial payments in our office.


{slider=What options do I have to pay my City property taxes?}

Debit card, credit card, ACH, Check by Mail, toll-free number or in person at our office. 

The City Recorder's Office is now approved to accept Debit/Credit cards for payment of city property taxes; however, a processing fee of 2.5% is charged. You can make your payment in person, by calling a toll-free number 833-591-8003 or online at  If you select to call and pay you will need the tax year and receipt number to proceed.  


{slider=How safe is it to pay property taxes online?}

Our website uses a secure socket layer to provide a safety measure against your information being stolen.  In fact, your online payments are more secure than sending a check through the postal system.


{slider=How do I know my payment has been received?}

Once you have submitted your payment, a printable receipt page of the transaction will be available for immediate printing and retention for your records.  The transaction page will contain all the information about your payment, as well as your payment confirmation number.  Be sure to print this for your records and/or in case you need to show proof of payment.
