See the latest information about vegetative debris collection on private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county due to Isaias >>

Residents on private roads in the unincorporated areas of Brunswick County need to place their vegetative debris from Hurricane Isaias in in the right-of-way of their property no later than the evening of Sunday, Aug. 30 for collection.

Click here for full details and instructions on this collection.

Crews will make one pass across the county and could arrive in any area as early as Monday. Any vegetative debris that is not on the right-of-way by Sunday evening will not be collected.

A right-of-way is generally defined as the edge of your property before the curb. If you have a sidewalk, ditch, or utility line in front of your house, make sure that your debris does not cover or restrict these areas.

This service will only include the private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county, including private roads in gated communities. The service will also collect any tree hangers or leaners in the rights-of-way.

This service will not collect or remove tree hangers or leaners that are on private property outside of a right-of-way.

Residents who need assistance to move debris or other needs following Hurricane Isaias can contact the Brunswick County VOAD for guidance and direction to organizations or services that may be able to help: 910-253-2589

Real Property

Property owners can appeal county assessed real estate values beginning January 1 each year. The deadline for appealing a value each year is the day the Board of Equalization and Review adjourns, which can be as early as April 1.

Please note: Brunswick County assessed real estate values reflect the market value as of January 1, 2019. Any inflation, deflation or other economic changes occurring after this date do not affect the county’s assessed value of the property and cannot be lawfully considered when reviewing the value for adjustment.

The first step in appealing is typically an informal review. This initial review is performed by a county real estate appraiser who will thoroughly review and consider your appeal. Once you are notified of the results of the review, you have the option of accepting the recommendation or appealing further. An informal review may be initiated by filing an appeal online using the link below.

Appeal Real Property Value:

Please note that you will first need your parcel number and also be required to supply some specific information related to the property you are appealing, this information can be found on your valuation notice if you have it or by accessing the below link to Search for your record.

Search Tax Records:


  • New Value is significantly higher or lower than the actual fair market value
  • New Value is inconsistent with the values of similar properties


  • Percentage Increase or Decrease from 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 tax)

Personal Property

A taxpayer who owns taxable personal property may appeal the value, situs, or taxability of the property within 30 days after the date of the initial notice of value. If the assessor does not give separate written notice of the value to the taxpayer at the taxpayer’s last known address, then the tax bill serves as notice of the value of the personal property.

Upon receipt of a timely appeal, the Brunswick County Tax Office will afford the taxpayer the opportunity to present any evidence or argument regarding the value, situs, or taxability of the property. The tax office will speak with the taxpayer, review the appeal and any documentation and then provide notice to the taxpayer of its final decision. Once you are notified, you have the option of accepting the recommendation or appealing further.

To initiate an appeal of personal property, call us at 910-253-2829.

Registered Motor Vehicles

Licensed motor vehicles are valued at retail for property tax purposes. A motor vehicle offered for sale by a dealer to the end consumer represents the best example of retail. Classified motor vehicles are not valued at wholesale, blue book or private party asking price for property tax purposes. Sales transactions between private buyers and sellers and internet valuation look-up web sites typically reflect these levels of trade.

Value adjustments may be necessary if the owner can document high mileage, significant body or frame damage, excessively worn interior or other damage that may significantly reduce the retail value. Normal wear and tear will not be considered.

Licensed vehicle value appeals and supporting documentation must be made within 30 days of the due date printed on the notice.

To initiate an appeal of a registered motor vehicle call us at 910-253-2829.

Board Of Equalization And Review

If you are unable to resolve your appeal directly with the Tax Assessor’s office, you would need to then formally appeal to the County Board of Equalization and Review (BOER). This is a special board appointed by the County Commissioners and consists of Brunswick County residents.

To initiate a BOER appeal, you may also use the Online Appeal Form – or call us at 910-253-2811.

Please note – Per North Carolina law, real property appeals must be received by the Tax Office prior to the adjournment of the Board, this can be as early as April 1st.
