The Assessor of Property does not set the tax rate. That is done by the Washington County Commission and the Johnson City Commission. The rate is set by those elected bodies to pay for the programs and services their governments offer to citizens. When this office reappraises property, an owners’ tax bill could go up or down depending on the new value, but that is not the same as setting the tax rate.
No. The County Trustee generates and sends out tax bills, and is also responsible for collecting taxes on property. The Assessors’ office works closely with the Trustee’s office since our duties are linked.
Washington County conducts regular reappraisals every five years, to make sure the assessed values of citizens’ property remain in line with their market values. The next reappraisal is scheduled for 2024.
The centers set their own hours, but all are closed on Sundays and Mondays. All centers will also be closed on the following holidays:

The five Washington County Convenience Centers exist for the use of Washington County residents, and for their disposal of residential waste. No business or commercial waste can be accepted at the convenience centers, and non-residents may not dispose of residential waste at the centers.
Make sure your waste is covered. Tennessee Code Annotated 39-14-503 states that any motor vehicle which transports any material likely to fall or be blown off onto highways shall be required to have such material either in an enclosed space or fully covered by a tarpaulin. Violation of this law is a class B misdemeanor and could result in a $200 fine.
There is no charge for disposal of residential waste at the convenience centers. See the "tire center" page for information on charges for disposal of tires.
