County clerks must receive an annual minimum salary in the amount for a general officer as formulated in T.C.A. § 8- 24-102. The county legislative body may increase the salary of general officers above the minimum amount, but may not increase the salary of the county clerk without also increasing the salary of other general officers. The amount due the county clerk as compensation does not vary with the amount of fees collected regardless of whether the salary of the county clerk is paid from the clerk's fee account or from the general fund.

More information on Compensation can be found under the General tab for County Offices.
