Atoka Property Taxes Remain Among the Lowest in the Region
 
Posted on Tuesday January 17, 2012
 
2011 property tax rates in Atoka remain among the lowest in the metro Memphis region - more than 40% lower than property tax rates in Shelby County municipalities and 60% lower than rates in Memphis.
 
After two decades of strong population growth, Atoka's combined property tax rate remains among the lowest in Shelby and Tipton counties.  Information available from the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury shows that Atoka's combined property tax rate of $2.895 is the second-to-lowest property tax rate amongst municipalities within the two west Tennessee counties.  The highest tax rate in the region exists within the City of Memphis with a combined tax rate of $7.2089. 

The low property tax rate is one of the factors that led to Atoka being named Tennessee's Best Affordable Suburb in 2010 by Business Week Magazine. 

Atoka takes pride in providing high quality, responsive municipal services while maintaining low and stable property tax rates for the community.  The Mayor, Aldermen and staff are constantly evaluating Town programs to ensure maximum value to Town customers and efficiency in operations.
