​Appealing Your Valuation 

                                                                                                                                         Filing An Appeal - Real Property

CURRENT NOTICES

Appeals for Tax Year 2016

Appeal requests to the 2016 Board of Equalization and Review (BER) must be filed with The Assessor's Office no later than the Board's adjournment date, which will be May 9, 2016 for this tax year.  No further appeals of real property will accepted after the Board's adjournment with the following exception: taxpayers receiving a notice of value change from the Assessor's Office will have the later of either the Board's adjournment date, or the "Last Date to Appeal" as stated in the notice, to appeal to the Board.


 


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 2016 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.
