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.
