The Automatic Assessment Discovery job will mail this week, with a notice date of June 19. Property owners have 30 days from the date of the notice to respond/contest the assessments they receive. The deadline date is July 19, 2013. There are approximately 9,100 Business Personal Property discovery assessments and 6,650 Individual Personal Property assessments outstanding.
The Assessor is required to list all property not voluntarily reported during the Annual Listing Period. Discovery of existing property 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 provides taxpayers with an opportunity to confirm the assessments are correct or to submit documentation and information to contest them.
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.
Property owners with questions about their assessment can call CharMeck 311 or they can go to the Mecklenburg County Assessor's Office at 700 E Stonewall Street, Suite 103.
