​Assessor to Provide Public Revaluation Update to City and Town Leaders


(Updated Nov. 28)

Through November and December, the public will have an opportunity to learn more about Mecklenburg County's 2023 property revaluation. The County Assessor's Office will present an update to city and town leaders at their regular meetings, all of which are open to the public.

Revaluation is the process in which Mecklenburg County revalues all property (land and buildings) to its current market value as of an established date, in this case Jan. 1, 2023. North Carolina law requires all counties to conduct a property revaluation at least every eight years. Mecklenburg County currently conducts revaluation every four years.

The Assessor's Office monitors market data to accurately determine the market value of all properties. Staff visit and observe properties to verify characteristics, compare similar property sales and consider improvements or changes made. Revaluation captures these changes in value for property tax purposes. Properties are revalued to ensure assessed values are based on the current market and establish equalization for property owners throughout Mecklenburg County. Property owners will be notified of their new assessed value in early 2023 and will have an opportunity to appeal in the following months.

There are steps property owners can take now to ensure that Mecklenburg County gets their value as accurate as possible. The Assessor's Office encourages property owners to check the Property Information System and submit any changes to correct possible errors. For example, if someone owns a three-bedroom home, but the property record erroneously lists four bedrooms, that information could mistakenly create a greater value.

Following the assessment of properties, tax rates are set by City, County, and Town elected officials every spring and applied to a property's value. The tax bill is calculated and mailed every summer to all property owners in Mecklenburg County.
