It is our mission to provide quality service to the citizens with knowledge and efficiency.


The Trustee serves three primary functions:

  1. Collecting all county property taxes (all property, tangible and intangible, must be assessed for taxation by the state or its political subdivisions unless property is declared to be exempt by some provision of Tennessee law)
  2. keeping a fair regular account of all money received
  3. investing temporarily idle funds

The Trustee disburses sales tax revenues and may collect municipal property taxes and other state and local taxes. The Trustee generally acts as treasurer for the county.

The Trustee’s Office must keep a detailed account of these transactions. In addition, the Trustee administers a State funded Tax Relief Program to help the elderly and disabled citizens pay their property taxes.

For qualifying applicants, the State of Tennessee will pay a portion of the property taxes for their home.
