Don’t Miss These Deadlines for NC Property Revaluation Appeals

24 NC Counties Revaluing Appeals

Almost one in four North Carolina counties are revaluing property this year for property tax purposes. Filing an appeal in the revaluation year will maximize the savings from any successful appeal. 

The first step in the property tax appeal process in North Carolina is an appeal to the local county Board of Equalization and Review (BER). In order to be timely, this appeal must be filed by the “adjournment date” of the BER. Most people interpret the BER adjournment date to mean the date that the BER stops hearing appeals. However, in this case, the adjournment date is just an artificial date that simply represents the deadline for filing appeals. Don’t fret — the BER will continue to meet after the “adjournment date” to hear appeals that were timely filed. 

The adjournment date varies from county to county and may vary in a particular county from year to year. The BER cannot begin meeting before the first Monday in April, and the adjournment date cannot be later than June 30. 

According to our research, the BER appeal deadlines for the 24 counties revaluing in 2021 are as follows:

Alleghany     April 21
