Mayor informs council that an estimated $12 million in new homes left off property tax rolls over past six years
At the latest Metro Council meeting, Metro Mayor Bonnie Lewis informed the council that new homes had been left off the Moore County property tax rolls dating back to 2015. Though she did not give a number or estimated dollar amount, The Times has since learned that there were over 60 new homes with an estimated value of over $12 million missing from local tax rolls.
Any Moore County property owner who disagrees with the re-assessment may appeal to County Board of Equalization when they begin meeting on June 1. Citizens can contact the Moore County property Assessor’s office at 931-759-7044. Their offices are located inside the Moore County Courthouse.
Moore County property owners have until before Sunday, February 28 to pay their 2020 tax bill without interest.
