The question:

I filed an appeal of the tax rate revaluation on my residential property in New Hanover County.  When will I get a reply on my appeal?

And the answer:

Appeals can sometimes take longer than expected if the county appraiser notices a pattern of appeals in a specific area. This could indicate the need for a neighborhood adjustment and the appraiser will wait until a broader look can be taken, New Hanover County Tax Director Roger Kelley said.

He said he guarantees property owners will receive a notice in time to appeal to the New Hanover County Special Board of Equalization.

“Nobody’s going to lose any rights because we’re slow,” he said.

So, county officials say, be patient. Some appeals will be quicker than others.

    In 2008, I visited the NHC Tax Department seeking revaluation information. Then on 12/29/2008, following their instructions, I wrote a four (4) page letter, which included two spreadsheets. To date, there has been no response. Good luck, to anyone seeking assistance from this governmental department.

    I too filed an appeal on the tax value resulting from the revaluation. I received a phone call from the county employee (appraiser) who set the value and he tried to pressure me into dropping my appeal. When I didn’t he sent me an email stating I would be contacted regarding my appeal to schedule an appointment with the Review Board. This was in February, as of today(May 14) I have not been contacted to schedule an appointment. Yesterday I emailed him to check on the status and received a response that they had over 4,000 appeals and did not have a schedule available.
