Appraisal & Valuation

Appraisal & Valuation

When and why do we periodically revalue property?

North Carolina law requires each county to complete a property revaluation at least once every eight years. The primary purpose of a revaluation is to ensure assessments reflect market value at the time of the revaluation and that taxation is fair and equitable for each of our citizens. Union County’s last revaluation was effective as of January 1, 2015. Therefore our current assessment must reflect the market as it existed the first day of 2015, and not as it exists today. If any buildings or other improvements have been added to a parcel after January 1, 2015, they will be by valued the same as similar buildings that existed at that time.

How do I appeal my valuation?

If a taxpayer believes the assessment does not fairly reflect the January 1, 2015 value of their property, or the assessment is inequitable with the assessment of similar properties they may appeal the value.

Union County appeal form is available here Appeal Form. Forms are also available at the Tax Administrator’s Office located at 500 N. Main Street, Suite 236, Monroe NC 28112 or by calling 704-283-3746.

The assessment may be appealed for any of the following scenarios:

  • The property is not appraised at the true market value as of January 1, 2015.
  • The property characteristics used to calculate your assessment is incorrect. This data can be viewed using our Real Property Search.
  • The property is not equally appraised as compared to other similar properties.

What do I do if I made changes to my property?

If changes to your property occur, other than by recorded deed, by plat or by building permits, it is the responsibility of the taxpayer to notify our office during the January listing period using the Improvement Listing Form. These changes include improvements, new construction, demolition, or removal of buildings.
