Work coming to a close in advance of 2017 property reappraisals

By Linda A. Moore of The Commercial Appeal
Property reappraisal notices for 2017 won't go out to Shelby County landowners until spring, but workers in the assessor's office are already busy putting the final touches on them.
Employees such as associate appraisers Elizabeth Sharpe and Marvin Byrd Jr. are rolling slowly down every street past every property in the county, looking at each house and comparing its characteristics and condition to those listed in the 2013 reappraisal.
That information, along with sales data from 2015 and 2016, will help the county come up with the new value of a house and the land it sits on as part of the reappraisal process that is conducted every four years.

Brian Mallory, a 10-year residential property appraiser and native Memphian, is growing the scope of his business to include property tax advisory services.
Mallory has presided over Mallory Appraisals since early 2003 and gleaned some helpful insight while a member of the Memphis & Shelby County Board of Equalization — where taxpayers go to dispute tax assessments.
“I got to see how the process works from that side of things and it was sort of an obvious fit since I already have an appraisal company serving Shelby County residents,” Mallory said.
