Important information on assessed values

Pursuant to NCGS 105-287, all property appraisals must be made in accordance with the 2012 Schedule of Values, Standards and Rules, which were duly adopted for the 2012 County-wide Revaluation Program. This in effect freezes the valuation date for all real property to January 1, 2012 and thus all comparable data used to determine value must be from 2011 and/or prior years. To successfully appeal an assessed value the taxpayer must demonstrate that the stated assessed value of the property is significantly different than the market value of the property based on the market conditions that existed on January 1, 2012 or that the assessed value is significantly different than other similar properties.
 
All requests for hearing should be made to:
