Tennessee Board Of Equalization Launches New Online Filing System

The State Board of Equalization in Tennessee has announced a new online filing system that is set to go live in April.

The State Board of Equalization ("SBOE") is pleased to announce the launch of an updated
paperless filing system and public portal. Beginning in mid-April of 2018, taxpayers and assessors wishing to submit a filing with the SBOE will now do so through our "SmartFile" paperless filing system. In addition, taxpayers and assessors needing to check on the status of pending appeals will be able to access that information through our new and more robust public portal.

Users of the new system will be able to electronically file:

- Value Appeals;
- Appeals of Initial Decision and Orders to the Assessment Appeals Commission;
- Exemption Applications; and
- Appeals of Initial Determinations on Exemption Applications.

All filers will be able to create their own accounts with the ability to start, save, and submit filings at their leisure. It is also now possible to include multiple parcels in one filing.

Please note that transitioning to the new system will require our online services to be unavailable for at least one day in April (tentatively scheduled for Friday, April6,2018). We will accept paper applications and appeals during the period our web services are unavailable.

This is a continuing trend of state agencies in Tennessee moving towards electronic filings, including the Davidson County Chancery Court. Stay tuned for additional details regarding account registration, roll-out, and training.
