Review Property Taxes?
Property tax rates for the Town of Signal Mountain are set by the Town Council. The Hamilton County Assessor evaluates and assigns a value to the property. The assessed value is then multiplied by the tax rate set annually by the Town Council. Property tax notices are mailed in late September or early October of each year. The payment period for Town taxes begins on October 1st and continues through the last day of February of the following year. On March 1st, Town taxes become delinquent and begin to accrue 1 ½ % per month interest. (This is the same for County taxes. If you live in the Town of Signal Mountain, you will owe both Town and County taxes. To learn more about your County taxes, visit the Hamilton County Assessor's website.)
Tennessee law does not require the mailing of tax notices indicating the amount of taxes due. Owners of property are presumed to know that taxes are due without personal notice. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the responsibility of payment, nor is this a reason for interest charges to be dismissed if the tax bill becomes delinquent.
