The Assessor is required to list all property not voluntarily reported during the Annual Listing period. Discovery of existing property in the system involves an automated process to send listings and notices of discovery to taxpayers who did not list their property during the regular listing period. The process allows taxpayers to provide documentation and information contesting an assessment or an opportunity to confirm the assessment as correct.
Business Personal property is all property owned or used in the operation of a business, including supplies, leasehold improvements, as well as Machinery, office equipment and computers. Individual Personal property is taxable property owned by individuals, such as jet skis, boats and boat motors, aircraft, manufactured homes, camping trailers/travel trailers and income producing farm equipment. In addition, all untagged motor vehicles are subject to listing as personal property if they do not have a current registration.
The Automatic Assessment Discovery job will be sent with a notice date of June 13. Property owners have 30 days from the date of the notice to respond/contest the assessments they receive. The deadline date is July 13, 2012.
Property owners with questions about their assessment can call CharMeck 311 or they can go to the Mecklenburg County Assessor's Office’s Office at 700 E Stonewall Street, Suite 103.
