Income Valuation

The Montgomery County Assessor of Property is undertaking a campaign to collect Income and Expense information to develop a database that can be used for the accurate analysis of Income producing properties. The Assessor recognizes that the Investment marketplace represents a significant portion of the Commercial and Industrial market in Montgomery County and is committed to enhancing and improving the valuation process for these types of properties.

All information provided to our Office will be treated with the strictest confidentiality. It is a violation of T.C.A. 67-5-401 for the Assessor to share the data with anyone outside the Office. This information will be used to establish the range of operational characteristics and criteria prevalent in the local market. The data will be analyzed to determine Median Market Indicators for such things as Rents, Misc. Income, Vacancy Rates, Collection Losses, Expense Ratios, Capitalization Rates, and lease terms.

By providing the requested information you will be assisting the Assessor in developing more accurate appraisals that are truly reflective of our local market rents. Once the information is analyzed and the Market criteria are established, all properties that returned information will be appraised using both “Cost Approach” and the “Income Approach.”  Whichever method yields the lowest valuation will be used to assess your property for tax purposes. You will not be penalized with a higher value because you submitted your information.
