  5. On March 1st, county taxes become delinquent and begin to accrue 1.5 % penalty and interest and increases each month thereafter.
  6. The Maury County Commission sets the property tax rate.
  7. Tennessee law does not require the mailing of tax notices indicating the amount of taxes due. Property owners are presumed to know that taxes are due without personal notification. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the responsibility of payment; nor is it a reason for penalty and interest charges to be waived if the tax bill becomes delinquent.
  8. The Property Assessor’s Office is responsible for appraising the property values on which taxes are assessed.
