Knox Board of Equalization meeting

Knox County property owners who don’t think their land is worth its current assessed value, can appeal to the local Board of Equalization, which meets each June.

Those wishing to challenge the value can schedule a meeting by calling 865-215-2006.
Last year some 808 folks appealed.

"We think all the training that we'd provided the appraisers now and the technology have allowed us to be more fair,” said Knox County Property Assessor Phil Ballard. There has been a leveling off and the real estate market and everything."

The Board of Equalization usually sees a spike in appeals every four years when the county does property appraisals.

The next round of re-appraisals takes place in 2017.
