2023 Brunswick County Revaluation Assessment Notices are Heading Your Way


2023 Brunswick County Revaluation Assessment Notices are Heading Your Way

Brunswick County property owners will receive their official new assessed value notice in the mail over the next week following the successful completion of the 2023 Revaluation. A revaluation (also known as a reappraisal) is a routine update to property tax values to bring them back in line with the current sale price of properties, as required by North Carolina law.

Regardless of whether your assessed value increased, decreased, or remained about the same, here are four points to consider if you have concerns about how it might affect your property taxes in the future:

  1. An increase in your property value does not necessarily mean your tax bill will increase.
  2. It is impossible to determine how your new assessed value affects your next property tax bill until the County, your municipal government, and/or other public entities that serve your property adopt their FY 2024 operating budgets and set tax rates (typically in late spring/early summer).
  3. Be cautious of claims about how much property taxes are increasing or changing, whether by dollars or percentage. Wait for your official tax bill this July/August 2023, which will be calculated using your local governments’ and public entities’ yet-to-be determined FY 2024 tax rates.
  4. Property values did not change uniformly throughout the county or even within each city or town—a lot depended on market conditions and recent sales in your neighborhood.

You can also see your latest assessed value on the Tax Office’s online Property and Tax Information Database. The department’s Property Record Card search tool also allows users to see the latest data on market values and sales for your property and other properties in your area.

All property owners have the right to appeal their values. The property owner is responsible for supplying information which supports their opinion of market value for the property in question.

If you wish to prove that your value is different from the amount stated on the notice, you can submit an appeal to our Tax Department online, by mail, or in-person. Learn more about the process and valid reasons to appeal your value at brunswickcountync.gov/appeals.

We will share more information and updates on the 2023 Revaluation as necessary. Learn more about the revaluation and see answers to our most frequently asked questions at brunswickcountync.gov/revaluation.
