Frequently asked questions from City of Clarksville

When are tax bills mailed out?

Featured in Pay Property Taxes, City of Clarksville

Clarksville tax bills for the current calendar year are mailed in October of each year. Tennessee law does not require the mailing of tax notices. 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 penalty and interest charges to be canceled if the tax bill becomes delinquent.

What time of year does the tax bill become due?

Featured in Pay Property Taxes, City of Clarksville

Clarksville Property taxes are due and payable from the first of October through the last day of February. Starting March 1, penalty and interest will be accrued.

What happens if I miss the tax payment deadline?

Featured in Pay Property Taxes, City of Clarksville

Beginning March 1st, taxes will be considered delinquent and will start to accrue monthly interest at a rate of 1.5 percent per month, or 18 percent annually. This amount is added to the tax bill.

After taxes have been delinquent for one year, the City of Clarksville then turns the taxes over to the Delinquent Tax Attorney. Once the taxes have been turned over to the tax attorney, additional fees will apply. 

Where can my tax bill be paid in person?

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Featured in Corona COVID-19 Response, State of Tennessee

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
