The Real Property Division is responsible for the appraisal and assessment of the county’s 40,000 parcels.
The next countywide reappraisal of real property will have an effective date of January 1, 2021.
The Jackson County Tax Assessor’s Office conducted a countywide reappraisal of all real property in accordance with the provisions of North Carolina General Statutes 105-283 and 105-317. The effective date of the existing reappraisal was January 1, 2016. The next countywide reappraisal will have an effective date of January 1, 2021. The purpose of a countywide reappraisal is to equalize the tax burden among property owners and all classes of property. The periodic reappraisal of real property equalizes the tax burden by ensuring all real property is assessed at its current, fair market value.
A Board of Equalization and Review appeal must be submitted by April 13, 2020. Please review the appeal process prior to submitting an appeal form.
