Knox County Tennessee

Welcome to the Knox County Trustee website

Due to new software issues, the Knox County Trustee’s Office has experienced a delay in issuing county tax bills. The department apologies for any inconvenience. Roughly two-thirds of Knox County property owners will not be affected by the delay, as their taxes are escrowed, therefore paid by banks and mortgage companies. The Trustee’s Office in November 2019 began working with a new vendor. The software was expected to be up and running by this tax season but the Covid pandemic affected the vendor’s resources and personnel. The deadline to pay Knox County property tax bills is not until February 28th. We hope to have an update on the matter soon.

In case of inclement weather, please go to www.knoxcounty.org to check for changes to our office hours or closing notices.
