Appeal your Mecklenburg County Property Tax Value
Thousands of Mecklenburg County residents, unhappy with their most recent 2011 property revaluation, have filed appeals to the Mecklenburg County BER (Board of Equalization and Review). Having observed many of these appeals, there are numerous pitfalls that property owners face in appealing their own tax value. Beginning in October 2013 after a record number of 2011 tax appeals, Mecklenburg County was ordered by the North Carolina General Assembly in accordance with Session law 2013-362, to again review all real property in efforts to fix the troublesome 2011 revaluation. The Mecklenburg County tax assessor’s office has hired Pearson’s Appraisal Service to assist with the revaluation in neighborhoods with major issues. With new assessments being sent out to property owners, some owners will receive notices from the county’s valuation that their tax value may be higher or lower than previously stated. If the new tax value is lower then the owner shall receive a refund of overpayments made from 2011, 2012, and 2013. If the new tax value is higher, then the property owner will face an unexpected increased tax burden and should consult with legal counsel before accepting this revaluation.

Common Mistakes in appealing property tax values
The most common, and often most costly, mistakes include presenting opinion of the value based on non-qualified sales and using recent comparable sales and appraisal reports past the revaluation date. Short sales, foreclosures, and other distressed sales cannot be considered by the Tax assessor’s office or the BER when determining the fair market value of your property. Additionally, appraisals and comparable sales after January 1, 2011 cannot be considered.
