​It Does Not Cost Anything to Appeal Your 2019 Real Estate Assessed Value

2/25/2019

sample notice graphic​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. 

Regarding the new value, residents have several options:

  • If you agree with the assessed value, you do not need to do anything further.
  • If you have questions or disagree with your new assessed value, you can file an informal review or formal appeal. 
     


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:

  • To request an informal review, visit MeckReval.com, click on “My Property Value” and enter your name, address or parcel number. Next, navigate to your property listing and click on “Make an Inquiry.” You can also complete the Informal Review Form that you received with your Notice.
  • If you wish to skip the informal review, you can file a formal appeal request with the Board of Equalization and Review (BER) by May 20, 2019. The Formal Appeals Form is available online at MeckReval.com. A direct link can be found here.
     


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.
