Q. How do I appeal New Hanover County business personal property values, and what documents do I need to support my appeal?

A. To appeal Business Personal Property that was listed, the taxpayer has 30 days from the date of the bill to submit his appeal in writing along with supporting documentation, according to New Hanover County tax listing supervisor Deanna Cochran. Supporting documentation needed would be the taxpayer’s financial records, such as a balance sheet, income statement, or asset disposal records.

To appeal the value of a boat that was listed, the taxpayer has 30 days from the date of the bill to submit his appeal in writing along with supporting documentation. Supporting documentation in this case would be a current marine survey, pictures of damage, or estimate for repairs.

These two instances were based on the taxpayers listing in January, Cochran said. If the taxpayer didn’t list and the county completes a discovery, the appeal time is 30 days from the date of the discovery notice. Everything else is the same as above.

To appeal the value of a registered motor vehicle, the taxpayer has 30 days from the date their tag expires to submit their appeal in writing. For example, Cochran said, “a plate expires on March 31st but DMV allows you to renew until April 15 without being late so your appeal time would end on May 15.” If the vehicle is in substandard condition the taxpayer may submit pictures or bring the vehicle to the tax office and a personal property appraiser will go out and look at the vehicle.

For more information, call the tax office at 910-798-7300.
