Appeal Your Shelby County Property Tax Assessment

Tennessee-licensed Property Tax Agent

Fees

     If our office decides to take on your property tax case, we will ask you to sign a contract that allows our company to represent you in front of the Shelby County Tax Assessor, the Shelby County Board of Equalization, and/or the State Board of Equalization. You are then a client of Mallory Property Tax Advisors, and we will advocate for you in getting your property taxes lowered.

We charge a $250 upfront fee, and 25% of the first year's savings.

The upfront fee includes researching tools/data collection, time, travel (if needed), and collections. Once this fee has been paid, we research your property to determine various factors that affect value (examples include location influences, external obsolescence, deferred maintenance), research sales in the area that are similar, present this data to the Assessor's Office in the form of an Informal Review, communicate with the appraiser assigned to your property from the Assessor's Office, and make the case for lowering your property tax burden. If an acceptable value cannot be achieved with negotiations with the Assessor's Office, a meeting before the Shelby County Board of Equalization will be scheduled, to plead our case before the board.

Once the Shelby County Tax Assessor, or Shelby County Board of Equalization, determines the new value and mails notification to the taxpayer, payment of 25% of the tax savings will be due. For example, if we are able to reduce your yearly property taxes by $400, you would owe $100.
