County leaders getting update on revaluation

County leaders will soon get an update on what can be done to help homeowners who saw errors in their 2011 property tax revaluation.

Pearson’s Appraisal Service, hired by the county to review the revaluation process, will present more findings to the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners over the next few weeks about fixing problems with the much-maligned review.

Thousands of homeowners complained after the revaluation that their property was valued incorrectly, leading to the commission-appointed review and Pearson’s finding numerous problems with the process.

The review group will give an update Feb. 5 on the general work plan involved with moving forward from the revaluation’s errors.

Then, the board will learn more about how to address minor problems in the revaluation on Feb. 19. What to do about the many “major” problems seen in the revaluation hasn’t been decided yet.

Some south Charlotte neighborhoods included in the list of those seeing “minor” errors include the Park Road Extension area, Huntingtowne Farms, Park Road, Carmel Road at Sharon View Road, Charing Place, Sardis Road North, Oberbeck Farms, Shadow Lake, Stonecroft, Carmel at Interstate 485, Berkeley, Oxford at Southampton and Raeburn, according to Pearson’s. “Major” problems were seen in the Governor’s Square area, Pellyn Woods, Sharon Woods, Lake Providence,
Providence Plantation and Glyndebourne.
