Mecklenburg County Revaluation
Every 4 to 8 years, Mecklenburg County takes on the enormous task of the revaluation of some 360,000 individual parcels of property to correct the "fair market value" estimates used to determine their tax value. January 1, 2019 is the effective date of the new valuation and represents the first such revaluation since 2011.
When you receive your Notice of Real Property Assessed Value in the mail in late January 2019, 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 of your desire to appeal. You do not have to have an appraisal in hand at the time of your request for an appeal but you may need one for the informal review or hearing by the Board of Adjustment that may occur a few months later.
Mecklenburg Count has extensive resources for property owners to research and get additional information about the process and paperwork requirements. Use the Links below to view Mecklenburg County's Tax Assessor's Office Website
