The process of evaluating property is ongoing and depends largely on communication between the property owners and the Tax Administration Office.
To help avoid discrepancies in property value and prepare for revaluation, the County mails property owners a listing document each January. The document informs owners of their responsibility to report any changes to the property. The County works with property owners to address potential discrepancies through the revaluation appeal process.
Should property owners determine the need, each revaluation notice includes an appeal form. Property owners may submit their appeal in writing to the Cabarrus County Tax Administration office within 30 days of receiving the notice or file their appeal online.
Cabarrus property owners who did not participate in the informal review process may request a hearing of the Cabarrus County Board of Equalization and Review. Property owners must submit a request to appeal in writing to the Cabarrus County Tax Administration office (65 Church Street SE, Concord) within 30 days of a notice of decision from an informal review or any change in value.
The Board of Equalization and Review is the first step in the formal appeal process. The purpose of the Board of Equalization and Review is to hear appeals from property owners of listing and appraisal decisions made by the Cabarrus County Assessor’s Office. The Board is composed of five members and one alternate, each appointed by the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners for three-year terms.
Once the property owner submits a request for appeal in writing, the County provides them with an Application for Hearing before the Board of Equalization and Review. Upon returning the application, the County will schedule a hearing and the property owner will have the opportunity to submit evidence in support of their appeal.
