Tax Office Prints Thousands Of Revaluation Notices
MECKLENBURG COUNTY, N.C. —
The Mecklenburg County Tax Assessor’s Office is busy printing 297,000 revaluation notices.
The office began printing the notices over the weekend and said it should be completed by the end of Monday.
The mailing will not show the amount of homeowners’ tax bill, because that amount will depend on the tax rate set by the County Commission in June.
Homeowners who don’t agree with the assessment can appeal.
“There is a tear-off at the bottom. They can fill out that form, send information that they believe is why the value substantially exceeds the fair market value and we'll begin looking at it right away,” county tax assessor Garrett Alexander said.
Appeals must be submitted within 30 days of when homeowners receive the notice.
The Tax Assessor’s Office said it expects the average home price in Mecklenburg County to increase by 6 to 9 percent.
The last county revaluation was done in 2003. If you don’t remember the value given then, you can check it by clicking here.
