Refunds result from an overpayment of taxes or from an assessment decrease. Decreases may be issued from the assessor, Shelby County Board of Equalization, or Tennessee State Board of Equalization. Refunds are issued daily. Every effort is made to issue refunds within 20 working days, but high volumes may extend this time line.
