Union County taxpayers recently received their 2020 property tax bills. Historically, a footnote and chart included on the tax bill have provided a categorical breakdown of only general fund expenditures. The chart on the 2020 tax bills addresses all categories of expenditures included in the FY21 adopted budget. The footnote below the chart was printed in error. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Tax Administration lists, appraises and assesses all real and personal property in Union County according to state law. Each year as of January 1, the Assessor must compile a tax roll of property subject to “ad valorem” (according to value) taxation.
Union County is a permanent listing county and does not require yearly tax listings of real property unless changes or improvements have been made. Maintenance such as painting/wallpaper, replacement of existing structures, landscaping, etc. is not considered an improvement, and does not require listing. It is the responsibility of the taxpayer to notify our office of any changes, other than those recorded by deed, by plot or by building permit, during the January listing period.
The North Carolina General Statutes mandate that all real property (land and buildings) must be reappraised at least once every eight years. Union County Board of Commissioners used a four year revaluation cycle in 2004 and in 2008. The next revaluation cycle was in 2015.
