Hamilton County Assessor of Property Marty Haynes was presented the 2019 Three Star Certification before the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers at the fall regional seminars in Knoxville on Nov. 8. The certificate was presented on behalf of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers by the Executive Director Will Denami.
“The Three Star Certification is a professional standard of operations recognized by the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers. The certification represents an operational analysis for compliance in the numerous standards monitored by the division of property assessments, as well as, a demonstrated commitment to continuing education. Marty Haynes has made it a priority to keep his office moving in the right direction,” said Mr. Denami.
“I am extremely proud of the team we have in the Assessor’s office. This is the first time our office has received the Three Star Certification and I could not be prouder of our efforts over the past three years. From technical standards to current best practices, our office is committed to serving the public in the best possible way and we stand ready to meet that expectation every day. The Hamilton County Assessor’s office will ensure all taxpayers are treated fairly and equitably,” said Mr. Haynes.
The Three Star Certification is an annual certification process where each office of the Assessor of Property is independently reviewed for technical compliance by the Comptroller’s division of property assessments. Each office must successfully complete the monitoring process and complete the necessary continuing education requirements for the Assessor of Property. Once the standards are met, the Assessor of Property submits application to the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers for verification.
