Craven County 2010
requires that a revaluation be conducted in each county at
least every 8 years. The last revaluation in Craven County
was 2002 and we are currently working on an update that will
take effect in 2010. The purpose of a revaluation is to
provide equalization among properties.
valuations will be mailed out in February, 2009. If you have
justification to support the fact that your value is not a
reasonable estimate of current market value, you may request
the county review your records to assure the property is
correctly listed and values are properly listed.
If you are
not satisfied with the results, you have 4 levels of appeal.
appeal to the assessor’s office where an appraiser will
review your record with you and, if warranted, complete an
additional on-site inspection of your property. If you do
not agree with their review you can.
Have a formal
appeal to the Craven County Board of Equalization and Review
where you may plead your case and present evidence for a
value change. If you do not agree with their assessment you
Appeal to the North Carolina Property Tax
Commission in Raleigh. If you are not satisfied with their
decision you can.
Continue your appeal on to a court of law for a final
mean my property taxes will go up in 2010? Some will go up,
some will actually go down, and some will remain around the
same. In my next newsletter I will talk a little more about
how the new appraisals will be done and how it could affect
the taxes you pay. Feel free to contact me at
