Will property taxes be retroactive if the city prevails in a lawsuit challenging the annexation of Monkey Junction?

David Reynolds

The City of Wilmington won’t assess property taxes on Monkey Junction residents until after the annexation is final, officials said.

So the taxes won’t be retroactive to the intended annexation date of June 10, 2010, said Carolyn Johnson, attorney for the City of Wilmington. The date has been postponed as a court case opposing the annexation is pending in court.

Several property owners filed the suit alleging they were denied access to a public hearing on the annexation in April 2009.

The annexation area is an approximately 950-acre tract south of Wilmington that includes 3,300 residents and numerous businesses.
