The City of Cookeville will file all unpaid 2015 property taxes with the Putnam County Chancery Court on Monday, April 3, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. These taxes can be paid at Cookeville City Hall, 45 East Broad Street, until March 31, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. (mail received after this date (no postmarks accepted) will be forwarded to the Clerk & Master’s Office for collection). If you purchased property during 2015, please call the property tax department at 931-520-5250 (open 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. CST Monday through Friday) to insure your taxes were paid. Often, taxpayers believe their taxes are paid at closing, when in fact they are usually settled – not paid.
Cathy McClain, City Clerk
