Mecklenburg County Revaluation
Every 4 to 8 years, Mecklenburg County takes on the enormous task of the revaluation of some 350,000 individual parcels of property to correct the "fair market value" estimates used to determine their tax value. January 1, 2011 is the effective date of the new valuation and represents the first such revaluation since 2003.
When you receive your Notice of Real Property Assessed Value in the mail in February 2011, you may find that your new valuation by Mecklenburg County is higher than you think it should be. If you do disagree with the value on your Notice, Mecklenburg County and NC State Law provides property owners an appeals process to dispute a county tax assessor's valuation of a property. Property owners have 30 days from the receipt of the Notice to notify the County in writing your desire to appeal.
