Tax Structure

The tax burden in Nashville is among the lowest in the country.

No Personal Income Tax

  • Property Taxes - The Assessor of Property appraises at property at "market value." Market value is the amount of money a well-informed buyer would pay and a well-informed seller would accept for property in an open and competitive market, without any outside influence.
  • Commercial and industrial property is assessed at 40% of value. Personal property is assessed at 30% of value with very competitive depreciation rates.
  • Real and personal property is taxed at a rate of $4.66 per $100 in the Urban Services District (USD) and $4.04 per $100 in the General Services District (GSD).

Sales Tax

  • Sales tax in Nashville is 9.25%. This includes the 7.0% Tennessee state sales tax and the 2.25% local option sales tax in Nashville.
