Beginning July 1, 2021, the Knox County Circuit and General Civil Sessions Courts will begin using the schedules of fees outlined in T.C.A. 8-21-401 for all fees and court costs.
Both courts had previously used the fee schedules listed in T.C.A. 8-21-409. The Tennessee General Assembly passed a bill deleting that code – effective July 1, 2021 – during the current legislative session.
The change brings the fees charged by all Knox County Courts into alignment with the other 94 counties in the State of Tennessee.
One significant difference is that under T.C.A. 8-21-401 costs are charged and collected at the time the services are requested, except as otherwise provided in the code.
Copies of the new fee schedules are available at the clerk’s offices.
