Crossville Property Taxes Due Thursday To Avoid Penalties

Unpaid Crossville property taxes are due Thursday to avoid penalties.

City Manager Greg Wood said Crossville property tax revenue comes to some $3 million for the city. Wood said historically, tax delinquency has not been a major problem in the city.

“We provide a lot of services in the city,” Wood said. “We have an ISO rating of three, we have an excellent fire department and an excellent police department. We provide trash pickup for all of the residential customers out of those taxes. A lot of services provided for 61 cents per $100 of total valuation, so I think we give a pretty good deal right now.”

Failure to pay by the end of the day Thursday will result in a 1.5 percent penalty per month. Citizens can come by City Hall and pay via cash, check, or credit card.

Wood said these tax dollars do not just affect Crossville. Wood said the recreation department provides most of the recreational services for the entirety of Cumberland County. Wood said property taxes play a major role in funding these services for the city, but Crossville has a very well-balanced budget as the economic hub of Cumberland County.  Wood said the city does not post-date, so any mailed payments will need to be mailed in advance to avoid a penalty.

“It’s a great idea to pay them on time if you can obviously,” Wood said. “Of course, our taxes are so low that everyone from Nashville is going to want to move to Crossville because it’s a great place.”
