What if I don’t agree with my new value?

All property owners have the right to appeal their values. The property owner is responsible for supplying information which supports his or her opinion of market value for the property in question. Such information may include a recent appraisal, perk tests, or recent sale price (typically 12 to 18 months prior of the January 1 2023 effective date) of comparable properties.

If you wish to prove that your value is different from the amount stated on the notice, you can submit an appeal to our Tax Department. You may do this online, by mail, or in-person. Call 910-253-2829 for more details.

Valid Reasons to Appeal Your Value:

  • Property value is significantly higher or lower than its actual fair market value as of January 1, 2023.
  • Property value is inconsistent with the values of similar properties.

Invalid Reasons to Appeal Your Value:

  • Percentage increase or decrease from the 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 taxes.)
