Present Use Valuation.– The Present Use Program (sometimes known as Farm Use) is a state mandated program designed to give relief to specific landowners for property that is being used for the production of agricultural, horticultural or forestry products. To qualify there are ownership, minimum acreage, income, and sound management requirements. Present use is a deferment not an exemption. If the property is removed from the program, taxes on the difference between the use value and the market value will become due for the current year and the three prior years, plus interest. For more information on this program contact the Appraisal Section at. Www.co.Iredell.nc.us.(click on Appraisal Cards under the quick links).The schedule of assessed values is established as of January 1 of the last countywide reappraisal. Changes in assessed value between reappraisals are made to reflect changes made to the property, such as; new construction, demolitions, remodeling, change in zoning, or to correct errors and misapplication of the schedule of values. Assessed values should reflect "Fair Market Value" as of January 1 of the last reappraisal. If you feel the assessed value of your property is incorrect you may file an appeal with the Iredell County Board of Equalization and Review. All appeals must be postmarked prior to the adjournment of the Board. Adjournment dates are typically in late April and are advertised prior to the first meeting each year. You may obtain an appeal form by making written request to the County Assessor, acting as Clerk to the Board, at PO Box 1027 Statesville, N. C. 28687. For questions on Real Property Appraisal call (704) 878-5368 or email. Kwise@co.iredell.nc.us.. For questions on the appeal of a value call (704) 928-2043 or email.bstewart@co.iredell.nc.us.Real Property Reappraisal/Revaluation.– North Carolina General Statutes require that all counties conduct a reappraisal of real property at least every eight years. Due to the rapid changes taking place in the local real estate market, the Iredell County Board of Commissioners has elected to authorize reappraisals every four years. More frequent reappraisals reduce the amount of inequity that occurs due to certain areas and property types increasing in value faster than others. Iredell County’s most recent reappraisal became effective on January 1, 2007. During the reappraisal process the Appraisal Section develops a uniform schedule of values by analyzing; cost data, sales data, and income data. This schedule of values is then adopted by the Iredell County Board of Commissioners. The purpose of the uniform schedule of values is to insure equity in valuations. The Appraisal Section has divided the county into approximately 650 "appraisal neighborhoods." Properties within each of these neighborhoods share many common characteristics and are affected by similar influences. Each appraiser has responsibility for a certain area of the county and the neighborhoods therein. During the reappraisal process the appraisal staff reviews all recent sales of real property within each neighborhood and applies adjustments to bring each property in line with its current market value. As a result of reappraisal, property values change accordingly to reflect the market trends within their neighborhood and property type. It would be simple for the Appraisal Section to appraise all recent sales at their sales price. This would not be equitable or accurate because not all sales are "arm’s- length" transactions. Sales between family members, related corporations, sales that are gifts, or sales involving trades do not always reflect market value. The needs and compulsions of the buyers and sellers may also influence sales prices. For example, a property may sell for less than market value if the seller is highly motivated or under duress to sell due to financial difficulties, relocation, and etc. A property may sell for higher than market value because; an organization negotiates a price for property not currently being marketed, a person moves from an area of higher prices and buys without fully investigating the market, etc. By analyzing all available sales the Appraisal Section can allow for unusual circumstances. The application of a schedule of values will not exactly match every sales price; however, it will insure that similar properties are assessed equitably.

Real and personal property tax bills are mailed in August of each year and become due on September 1. These bills must be paid by January 5 of the following year to avoid interest and additional penalties. After January 5 all past due accounts are assessed an interest charge of 2% on January 6 and an additional ¾% is added on the first day of each month thereafter until the bill is paid in full. During the month of March all unpaid real estate taxes will be advertised in the newspaper and an advertising fee is added to the unpaid bill.

The owner of record on the date taxes become delinquent will be advertised if taxes remain unpaid. If you have questions concerning how your taxes were prorated, contact your realtor or closing attorney.

If you sell a vehicle and surrender the tag to the Department of Motor Vehicles you may be due a refund or a pro-rated tax bill.

This collection of base maps, land features, and values are used to compile our Geographic Information System (GIS). With this system, tracts of land are assigned Parcel Identification Numbers (PIN) which geographically locates that property. This PIN is then used by other county departments to update and maintain the parcel information such as: owner, acreage, value, and zoning. Our maps are the basis of information on which many other departments rely. For example: E-911 addressing, along with Planning & Zoning, utilizes the GIS system daily to conduct their various duties.Our staff members develop and maintain the Land Records/Mapping system, as well as assist the general public. For more information about Land Records/Mapping or help with any mapping need, please contact our office at. (704) 878-3137.or visit our department. We are located at 135 E.

Hearings are conducted under the rules of evidence as practiced in the general courts of justice of the State. All testimony is given under oath and is recorded by a court reporter. Decisions of the Commission are made in the form of an order setting forth its findings of fact and conclusions of law. Appeals from Commission decisions are to the Court of Appeals and are based on the record made at the Hearing.Anyone desiring further information concerning the procedure for filing an appeal with the Property Tax Commission and its functions may write to the Property Tax Commission, PO Box 871, Raleigh, NC 27602 or call 919-733-7719.

Statements will be issued for each motor vehicle and taxes will become due on the first day of the fourth month after the vehicle is registered. Taxes become past due on the first day of the following month and are assessed an interest charge of 5% for the first month and an additional ¾% on the first day of each month thereafter until the bill is paid in full.
