YANCEY COUNTY GENERAL REAPPRAISAL OF REAL PROPERTY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contacts: Pearson’s Appraisal Service, Inc. and the Yancey County Tax Office
Yancey County has retained Pearson’s Appraisal Service, Inc., to perform the Yancey County general reappraisal of real property with values to become effective January 1, 2024. The General Statutes of North Carolina mandates that Yancey County reappraise all real property at least every eight years beginning with 1976 to determine each property’s fair market value for the purpose of taxation.
When the members of the revaluation team begin visiting properties, they will be carrying photo I.D.’s and will have magnetic “Yancey County Revaluation” signs on their cars. We want to alert the public to this, because our appraisers will be coming out to residents’ homes to look at buildings and land, as well as, to take exterior pictures/measurements in order to determine their fair market value. It is our ultimate goal to get a good, accurate assessment of all real property in the county. No revaluation staff will be entering any home.
The field assessments are expected to be completed on or before January 1, 2024 and the notices of the assessed values will be mailed out to property owners on or before January 1, 2024. These notices will also give the details on the method of appealing the assessed values.
If a property owner has any additional information that they would like the appraisers to know, please call (828)-682-2198.
