Rutherford County Assessor of Property, Rob Mitchell, was presented the 2019 Three Star Certification before the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers at the fall regional seminars. 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. Rob Mitchell’s innovative approaches and continual refinements keep the Rutherford County office of the Assessor on the cutting edge,” said Will Denami.
“We are fortunate to have such a strong and dedicated team in the Rutherford County Assessor’s office. We recognize our role is to serve the public fairly and equitably and that requires constant improvement to do it right.

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.
