At the January 19th meeting of the Kure Beach Town Council, Allison Snell from the New Hanover County Tax Department presented information on the tax revaluation of properties in the county. The effective date of the reappraisal of properties is January 1, 2017, and a “Notice of Value” letter will be mailed to all property owners in February 2017. There will be a chance to dispute the appraisal via an appeal form provided by the county, for anyone who wishes to do so. For those property owners who submit an appeal form to the county, informal hearings will be scheduled between February and March 2017, and final hearings will be held by the Board of Equalization and Review beginning in April. If you require more information, please call the county’s tax department at 910-798-7300 or access their website at www.tax.nhcgov.com.
