Appealing Your Valuation 

 

CURRENT NOTICES

Appeals for Tax Year 2015 Officially End

The 2015 Board of Equalization and Review (BER) set their adjournment date as May 11, 2015.  No further appeals of real property are accepted after the Board's adjournment in any tax year.  Only property owners who receive notices of new value from the Assessor's Office can appeal within 30 days of the date of the notice, regardless of the adjournment.

Review Your Real Property Listing
Property owners can view the County's record information in detail, and even note any discrepancies beside the respective attributes to send to the Assessor's Office for review. A short tutorial is available for assistance. Property owners may access the Property Record Feedback Tool here, or go to the Revaluation page for this and other tools.


THE APPEAL PROCESS

The appeal process is an essential component of property valuation. The County can staff only a limited number of appraisers and property specialists to value all of these properties - real property, vehicles, business and individual personal property. Property owners are entitled to request that values of specific properties be reviewed (appealed) in light of aspects of the property that may not have been included when the Office set the value.

This site is for Mecklenburg County property owners who have appealed the values of their real property:

  1. In response to the County's review of values from the 2011 revaluation, also know as SL-362 (authorizing legislation) or Pearson's appeals (contract appraisal service performing the review);
  2. In tax year 2015 through the normal tax year appeal process.

County appraisal staff will talk with property owners who have submitted appeals to fully understand their concerns, and to provide any relevant information regarding property value. Upon further review, the Assessor’s Office will make their recommendations based on the evidence: reduction, no change, or in some cases, an increase.
 
Property owners who are not satisfied with the conclusions of the Assessor’s Office  can continue their appeals to be heard before the Board.  Property owners can choose to appear in person, be represented by either an attorney-at-law licensed in North Carolina or a duly authorized representative having Power of Attorney, or allow the Board to decide based solely on the evidence they have submitted.
