Request Appeal

Types of Appeals:

Property owners can appeal county-assessed real estate values beginning January 1 each year. The deadline for appealing a value each year is the day the Board of Equalization and Review adjourns, which can be as early as April 1.

Please note: Brunswick County assessed real estate values reflect the market value as of January 1, 2023. Any inflation, deflation or other economic changes occurring after this date do not affect the county's assessed value of the property and cannot be lawfully considered when reviewing the value for adjustment.

The first step in appealing is typically an informal review. This initial review is performed by a county real estate appraiser who will thoroughly review and consider your appeal. Once you are notified of the results of the review, you have the option of accepting the recommendation or appealing further. An informal review may be initiated by filing an appeal online.

Please note that you will first need your parcel number and also be required to supply some specific information related to the property you are appealing. This information can be found on your valuation notice if you have it or you can search for your tax record online.

Taxpayers May Appeal for the Following Reasons:

  • New Value is significantly higher or lower than the actual fair market value
  • New Value is inconsistent with the values of similar properties

Appeals Cannot Be Considered for the Following Reasons:

  • Percentage Increase or Decrease from previous assessed value
  • Percentage Increase or Decrease as compared to any area's average increase or decrease (county, region, area, neighborhood…etc.)
  • Your financial ability to pay any anticipated tax (Note: An increase or decrease in value does not mean you will pay more or less tax)
