Calculate Your Property Tax
The City of Alcoa annually reconsiders its tax rate as it deliberates budget needs. You can compute your tax amount to see how tax increases/decreases will affect you. First, you need to find your notice from the county tax assessor's office to see the appraisal value of your property. To compute the assessed value you will multiply the appraisal amount by 25% if your property is residential, 30% if your property is commercial personal property, and 40% if your property is commercial. Next you will take the assessed value of your property and divide it by $100 and then multiply that by the tax rate.
