Information About New Flood Maps and Flood Ordinance Changes

06.13.2018

Brunswick County is considering adopting new flood maps and amending the County’s Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance, to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

FEMA regularly updates Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) using studies to improve the maps and ensure their accuracy. The last maps FEMA approved for our area were adopted in 2006; since then, FEMA has worked to study and improve these maps. Now that FEMA has approved updated maps, Brunswick County can adopt them and continue to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

To view the current effective maps or the preliminary maps on the State’s website, visit the Flood Risk Information System (FRIS) – Flood Maps, which will automatically show the current effective maps. To view the preliminary maps, in the top right corner of the page, click on “Effective” and change to “Preliminary.” This will allow the viewer to see the maps being adopted on August 28, 2018.

Brunswick County will be scheduling a public hearing about these changes, and a public informational workshop will be held on July 10, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the County Commissioners Chambers, at 30 Government Center Drive in Bolivia, NC.

2019 Brunswick County Reappraisal FAQ

All the information you could ever hope to know about the 2019 Brunswick County Reappraisal. If you have a question that isn’t answered below please call us at (910) 253-2811.

WHAT IS A REAPPRAISAL AND WHY HAVE ONE?

Reappraisal is a process in which all real estate values are assessed at their market value as of a specific date. The purpose of a Reappraisal is to provide equalization among all types of properties. North Carolina General Statutes require each county to conduct a Reappraisal at least once every eight years. Brunswick County conducts a Reappraisal every four years. The last Reappraisal was effective January 1, 2015.

WHEN IS THE NEXT REAPPRAISAL IN BRUNSWICK COUNTY?

The next County-wide reappraisal for Brunswick County is effective January 1, 2019. This affects your 2019 tax value and the tax bill you will receive sometime in July/August of 2019.

WHAT IS MARKET VALUE?

Market value is defined as “the price estimated in terms of money at which the property would change hands between a willing and financially able buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy or to sell and both having reasonable knowledge of all the uses to which the property is adapted and for which it is capable of being used.”

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY REAPPRAISAL NOTICE OF ASSESSED VALUE?

Our goal is to mail them out no later than February of 2019. This is subject to change.

WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT MY NEW VALUE?

You may be able to find the answer to your question by reviewing your tax record. Visit this page to locate your property record. If you still have questions you may call us at (910) 253-2811, Monday through Friday 8:30 am – 5 pm and we’d be happy to assist you.

WHAT IF I DISAGREE WITH MY NEW 2019 VALUE?

You can submit an appeal to our office. You may do this online(will be available when 2019 notices are mailed) or mail the form included on the back of your notice of assessed value.

WHAT ARE VALID REASONS TO APPEAL MY VALUE?
  • Property value is significantly higher or lower than its actual fair market value as of January 1, 2019.
  • Property value is inconsistent with the values of similar properties.
WHAT ARE INVALID REASONS TO APPEAL MY 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.)
