ORANGE COUNTY ADOPTS SCHEDULE OF VALUES FOR 2017 REAPPRAISAL

ORANGE COUNTY, NC (October 19, 2016) – Orange County property owners have until Nov. 3, 2016, to appeal to the North Carolina Property Tax Commission the schedule of rules, standards and values adopted by the Board of County Commissioners on Oct. 4. The board adopted the order as part of its process to reappraise the value of real property in Orange County.

North Carolina statutes require county governments to reappraise real property at least once every eight years. The appraisal adjusts values to ensure that all property owners are being taxed at fair market value. Orange County’s last appraisal took effect January 2009.

The schedules are available for public viewing at the Orange County Tax Office (228 S. Churton Street, Hillsborough); Clerk to the Board of Commissioners (200 S. Cameron Street, Hillsborough); all Orange County Public Libraries, the Chapel Hill Public Library, and on the Orange County website (www.orangecountync.gov/departments/tax/revaluation.php).

Property owners will be notified of the new values in February 2017, said Orange County Tax Administrator Dwane Brinson.
