2018 Iredell County Real Property Online Appeal Form
Based on the 2015 Reappraisal and Schedule of Values

Welcome to the electronic appeals process for Iredell County. You may request an appeal any time prior to the adjournment of the Board of Equalization and Review or within 30 days of your last Notice of Assessed Value. All requests for appeal must be made in writing or by completing an appeal using the Iredell County Online Appeal System. Appeal forms are available at The County Assessor's Office.  The first meeting of the Board of Equalization and Review must be held no earlier than the first Monday in April and no later than the first Monday in May.  Actual times and dates will be advertised in the local newspaper.

§ 105-283. Uniform appraisal standards.

All property, real and personal, shall as far as practicable be appraised or valued at its true value in money. When used in this Subchapter, the words "true value" shall be interpreted as meaning market value, that is, the price estimated in terms of money at which the property would change hands between a willing and financially able buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy or to sell and both having reasonable knowledge of all the uses to which the property is adapted and for which it is capable of being used. For the purposes of this section, the acquisition of an interest in land by an entity having the power of eminent domain with respect to the interest acquired shall not be considered competent evidence of the true value in money of comparable land.

Do you feel your ASSESSED VALUE is equal to the market value?

If YES, no appeal is necessary. You may exit this form without submitting.
If NO, please continue with the remainder of this form.

APPEAL REVIEW PROCESS

A change in value will be considered only if the real estate owner can demonstrate through competent material and substantial evidence that the county’s assessed value is arbitrary or illegal and that the assessed value substantially differs from the true value in money (market value) of the property as of January 1 of the reappraisal year 2015. 2018 assessed values are based on the 2015 Reappraisal and Schedule of Values, with an effective date of January 1, 2015.

Appeals must be completed in their entirety and submitted within the prescribed time. Include your daytime phone number in the event an appraiser needs to contact you. The appraiser responsible for your area will review the information you have provided and respond to you with a new Notice of Real Estate Assessed Value.

The objective of this review will be to assure your property is appraised at 100% of its true (market) value, based on the 2015 Reappraisal and Schedule of Values. Therefore, your value could decrease, increase or remain the same.

BOARD OF EQUALIZATION AND REVIEW

The first meeting of the Board of Equalization and Review must be held no earlier than the first Monday in April and no later than the first Monday in May.
