Appeal Your Shelby County Property Tax Assessment

Tennessee-licensed Property Tax Agent


When a taxpayer disagrees with the Shelby County Tax Assessor, a TN-licensed property tax agent can often-times present evidence that reflects a more accurate picture of the property. Most of the time, our office is able to point out significant reasons why the comparables used by the Assessor's Office are not truly comparable. We will then put together a report to be presented to the Assessor's Office, or the Board of Equalization, explaining why certain comparables are not appropriate, and present comparables which are appropriate.

Our office can fully represent your interests in presenting a case to the Shelby County Tax Assessor's Office, the Shelby County Board of Equalization, or the State Board of Equalization. The first step is to contact our office. 

Appraiser vs. Taxpayer Agent

There is a big difference in what an appraiser and a taxpayer agent can do for you when appealing your property tax assessment. An appraiser is bound by USPAP guidelines when providing appraisal services. This means the appraiser can provide an unbiased opinion of value for tax purposes, but cannot be an advocate for you or assist in representation when negotiating with the Assessor or Board of Equalization. A taxpayer agent, on the other hand, has a special license that allows them to be an advocate for their client in getting their property tax value reduced. Brian Mallory is licensed as both a certified residential appraiser and a taxpayer agent, but acting only as a tax agent for tax appeals. Mallory Property Tax Advisors is considered a valuation services firm specializing in assessment appeals advocacy consulting. In contrast, an appraisal is an unbiased opinion of value for which contingency fees are prohibited.
