The Assessor of Property office maintains a large amount of public information on local properties in order to correctly classify and assess them for tax purposes. While the primary purpose for these records and documents is to assist assessment personnel with their duties, this information is also used extensively by other government offices, members of the local real estate, legal and financial communities, as well as the general public.

Below are a few of the major information sources and services available at the Assessor's Office:
Property Record Cards
The Assessor creates and maintains an individual property record card on every parcel of property in the county (approximately 53,000). These records are updated weekly by the State of Tennessee Local Assessor System for web viewing. Specific records can be retrieved through use of a computer terminal available to the general public. Information contained on property record cards includes:
street address of the property
names of owner(s)
parcel identification number
address of owner(s)
subdivision name (if applicable)
lot # (if applicable)
dimensions of lot
acreage for larger tracts
construction types and components for structures (type roofing, foundation, etc.)
extra features of improvements (fireplaces, driveways, etc.)
value for improvements
value for land
overall appraisal for tax purposes for land and all improvements
overall assessment value
transfer data, including sales history (amounts, dates, deed volume and page #'s)
The Assessor's Office maintains a set of maps of all properties in the jurisdiction to keep inventory of size, location, and boundary information. These maps are constantly updated through the use of data contained in transfer deeds, registered surveys and recorded plats of subdivisions. Currently, there are approximately 798 maps of record in our office. Wilson County Tax Maps are for Assessment Purposes only. Our tax maps area graphical representation of information. Your deed is your legal ownership. Recorded plats are matched with maps to make a graphical representation. Boundary deeds are mapped to the best of our ability viewing the aerials provided to us that were flown in 2020.
