Revaluations are required by North Carolina Law. North Carolina General Statute § 105-286 requires each county to conduct a revaluation (reappraisal) at least once every eight years to reflect current market value. Many counties including Brunswick County conduct their revaluations every four years. The last revaluation was effective January 1, 2019.

A revaluation (also known as a reappraisal) is a routine update to property tax values to bring them back in line with the current sale price of properties.
The 2023 revaluation will go into effect Jan. 1, 2023. You will receive your revaluation (reappraisal) notice sometime in the first quarter of 2023. The new values will be reflected on the tax bills received in July/August 2023.
People who buy and sell real estate in the open market establish market values. Our North Carolina State-certified in-house appraisers diligently and carefully research and analyze those sales in our local market to determine an estimate of market value for all properties, as we are required to do by law.

Property values will not change uniformly throughout the county. Depending on market conditions and recent sales in your neighborhood, your assessed value may increase, decrease, or remain the same. Due to the strong real estate market throughout the country, it is likely that many properties will rise in value, but again, this could differ per area and type of property.
The effects of the 2023 revaluation on your next tax bill cannot be determined until operating budgets are adopted and the county and municipal governing bodies have set tax rates for the next fiscal year. Budgets are adopted and tax rates are set prior to July 1 each year.
There are three factors that determine how much tax each property owner must pay:
Revaluations do not reflect what a property owner's tax bill will be. The assessed value of your property is only one factor that impacts your property tax bill.
Tax rates are set by the Board of Commissioners and municipalities' elected officials annually as part of their fiscal year budget cycles. The next county and municipal tax rates will be set prior to July 2023.
