Nashville Bits and Pieces

Recommended Posts

I could be wrong, but I believe @PaulChinetti is referring to businesses that had successful appeals (and a lower tax bill), and @DeemonBruhn is referring to the businesses (Amazon, AllianceBernstein) that received tax incentives. 

Either way, is it legal for metro to not allow any tax appeals?

I think even if Davidson County determined to deny all appeals, there is state-level recourse beyond that https://comptroller.tn.gov/boards/state-board-of-equalization/value-appeals.html 

 

Quote

Should a taxpayer disagree with a decision of a county board of equalization the taxpayer may appeal to the State Board of Equalization for a hearing and determination by an administrative law judge. While there is no specific timeframe for when a hearing will be scheduled before an administrative law judge, the taxpayer and county assessor will receive a notice approximately thirty (30) days in advance of any scheduled hearing. 

An Initial Decision and Order regarding a taxpayer's appeal will be issued by the administrative judge within ninety (90) days of the hearing.  A taxpayer has thirty (30) days from the date of the Initial Decision & Order to appeal to the Assessment Appeals Commission, otherwise the appeal becomes the final decision of the State Board of Equalization.

Seattle still leads the pack with the most cranes despite the articles findings

I guess my question is why is this article singling out Nashville as if fast growth is unique here? Last time I checked mid sized cities like Austin, Charlotte, Raleigh etc are growing just as fast if not faster and yet I rarely see articles from major news publications regarding growth pains in those cities. I get Nashville is the "it city" and all but not sure what articles like this are meant to accomplish.

There are crap loads of articles about Austin's growth pains and have been for a long time.  It's not unique to Nashville  or any other fast growing city.  It just seems that Nashville has joined the list of cities that get articles about it.

I took about a 2-month break from the forum a while back and had 6 or 7 pages of unread posts when I came back.  :tw_open_mouth:

I know I’m in the minority in my opinion, but I’m very much against shutting down downtown Nashville streets during the work week for various events. We have many areas, not in the heart of downtown, to hold events. Again, I know most folks don’t agree with me....

I with you. I think it was sort of cool at first, but now it seems as if there is some kind of event on a weekly basis that closes something downtown. When they close a main street for multiple days on end, it really does get frustrating for the people that live and work downtown. Many times the police are just downright rude and public works does a poor job of putting out detour signs. 

 

It seems to always be a "Charlie Foxtrot"... If you dont know what that means, just google it with the word slang. If you were in the military you will know.
