Revaluation in a North Carolina county involves assessing the fair market value of all taxable properties within the county as of January 1st. This assessed value is used to calculate property taxes. The county and municipality determine the tax rate for each property by July 1st. Notably, North Carolina does not impose a state property tax. North Carolina law mandates counties to revalue real property at least once every eight years. However, many counties opt for more frequent revaluations. Typically, counties in North Carolina conduct property revaluations every four years, known as revaluation years. Between these revaluation years, the tax value usually remains unchanged unless there are physical alterations to the property.

Board of Equalization and Review

The initial stage of the appeal process involves appealing to the Board of Equalization and Review (BER). Comprising local appointees selected by County Commissioners, the BER must convene its first meeting between the first Monday in April and the first Monday in May. During this meeting, the BER establishes the deadline for filing appeals, which can vary by county and year. To ensure timeliness, it’s advisable to submit appeals before the first Monday in April.

NC Property Tax Commission

Following a hearing before the Board of Equalization and Review, you will receive a decision notice. If dissatisfied with this decision, you have 30 days to file a Notice of Appeal and Application for Hearing with the North Carolina Property Tax Commission. This commission conducts formal legal proceedings where taxpayers must present evidence supporting their belief of unfair property assessment. Subsequently, the taxing jurisdiction has the chance to defend its valuation as fair market value.

NC Court of Appeals and Supreme Court

Once the North Carolina Property Tax Commission renders a decision, both the taxpayer and taxing jurisdiction retain the right to appeal to the North Carolina Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals can uphold, overturn, or remand the commission’s decision for further review. In certain circumstances, rulings by the North Carolina Court of Appeals can be appealed to the Supreme Court of North Carolina.
