Let’s take a minute and imagine if the world were different. What if there were no property taxes? That would certainly make a few folks happier. That would mean no return due dates. No appeal, assessment, or extension dates. And definitely no organization required to remember all of those dates. An interesting dream indeed.
We can’t change the fact that property taxes and all the dates and deadlines exist, and will continue to exist for the foreseeable future. But we can make it easier for you to remember those important dates with our PropTax Calendar. The calendar has all the dates in one place, for every state.
For access to the PropTax Calendar, you can check it out on our website. Or if you’d like a hard copy, feel free to print one off or we’d be happy to send you a nice glossy copy if you prefer. We want to make the world a better place, one property tax resource at a time.

It’s not every day you find a property assessor who thinks his own county is overspending…until you meet Rob Mitchell, property assessor of Rutherford County, Tennessee. He wrote a letter to WGNS stating that the county “spent about fifty eight million dollars more than they brought in over the last three years.” And he’s tired of taking the heat for it:
“In the Assessor’s Office we are doing our part. We are correcting injustices, correcting values on properties and making meaningful strides to restore a lost confidence in our department. The real question is why is a three year fifty eight million dollar deficit in County spending not an issue?…”
