Property Tax


Tennessee law does not require the mailing of tax notices indicating the amount of taxes due. Tax notices are sent out of public courtesy, and not out of legal obligation. As such owners of property are legally presumed to know that taxes are due without personal notice. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve you of the responsibility to make payment on your taxes by the due date. If you did not receive a tax bill you can search for a copy of a property tax bill by using the City of Chattanooga Property tax search engine, contact us by phone at (423) 643-7262, contact us by email at ptax@chattanooga.gov, or come in person to Chattanooga City Hall at 101 E 11th St, Room 100, Chattanooga, TN 37402.
