Dear Property Owners,

Our office is conducting the 2021 reappraisal of all real property located within Alleghany County.

Once this process is complete the values assessed to each parcel of real property should reflect the market value as of January 1, 2021. The new value notices will be mailed to property owners in February, 2020. North Carolina General Statutes require counties to conduct a general revaluation at least once every 8 years. Alleghany County is now on a six (6) year cycle.

For Reval 2021, the County Tax staff will be conducting the revaluation on residential properties and Vincent Valuations, a contracted appraisal firm, will assess all commercial properties. The property tax appraisers are out in the county performing reviews at this time. The tax appraiser will be in a county vehicle clearly marked with "revalleghany" and will have photo identification to identify themselves. If you are not home at the time of the visit they will leave a door hanger with some very important questions about your property. You can either return the door hanger by mail or in person. You may also submit the door hanger information electronically by selecting the "door hanger reply" tab at the top of the home page.

The purpose of the revaluation is to equalize value among property owners. Your property value may increase, decrease or have no change in value. The new value should be indicative of the market value as of 1/1/2021. Your new value should be compared to what similar properties are selling for in your neighborhood. If you find that not to be the case, then please follow the appeal procedures found on a following page within this website. An increase or decrease in value is not a valid reason to appeal your value, you will need supporting information as to why you feel your value is incorrect. As we get closer to 1/1/2021 we will be providing additional information so that property owners can research sales in their area to assist them in making sure that their new assessment is fair and accurate.

We hope to provide our property owners with a revaluation that is fair and equitable to all, that is easily understood, and provides our citizens with enough information so that they can easily understand the process. As always, we strive to provide you with the best possible customer service we can while developing fair and equitable values for all.

Thank you,
Rita Miller,
Tax Administrator
