Haywood County has implemented an Electronic Appeal Process that can be used during this reappraisal. Information and instructions will be included on the new value notice. As with previous reappraisals, the option of mailing your appeal will still be available. Depending on the COVID situation at the time the notices are mailed out, neither of these options would require personal contact to file a valid appeal.
The first step in the appeal process is an informal appeal which you may make an appointment with to come in and talk to your Appraiser. An appeal can result in the value being unchanged, increased or decreased. The next step in the appeal process is a formal appeal to the Board of Equalization and Review. The Board of Equalization and Review will meet as needed to hear all appeals. An appeal from the Board of Equalization and Review goes to the North Carolina Property Tax Commission which is held in Raleigh. Appeals from the Property Tax Commission go through the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court.
