Last month, Mecklenburg County’s nearly 400,000 real property owners received their Notice of 2019 Real Estate Assessed Value. Keep in mind, the notice is NOT a bill, simply the current market value of your property as of Jan. 1, 2019.

There is NO COST to request a review or to file an appeal. You do not need an attorney or a tax representative to file an appeal. If a business claims that there is a cost to appeal, the business would be misleading the public. Any fee charged by a third party goes to that business. The County Assessor’s Office is aware of at least one company that is telling property owners: “Your property taxes are going up.” This is a misleading statement, as the tax rates for the County, the City and the Towns will not be set until May or June. Whether an individual property owner’s property taxes are going up, staying the same, or being reduced will not be known until the tax rates are set by the respective jurisdictions. In fact, the Assessor’s Office offers the following appeal steps absolutely FREE:
If you have questions at any point during the informal review or formal appeals process, please contact the County Assessor’s Office at 980-314-4226 or AssessorQuestions@MeckNC.gov.
