Fake Revaluation Notices Being Circulated Throughout County
The Mecklenburg County Assessor’s Office is aware of a fake Notice of 2019 Real Estate Assessed Value that is being circulated to property owners across the county. Property owners are reminded that official Notices were initially mailed in late January. View official sample Notice here.
The fake Notice that is being circulated states in very fine print at the bottom that it is from Greater Charlotte Properties. The fake Notice has a few distinguishing features from the official Notice. Here is how you can tell if you have received a fake Notice:
- The fake Notice does not include the County seal at the top. The official Notice that went out in January does.
- The fake Notice references MeckPropertyReval.com. The official website for the 2019 Revaluation is MeckReval.com.
- The fake Notice says “Notice of 2019 Real Estate Valuation and Appeal Process.” The official Notice says “Notice of 2019 Real Estate Assessed Value.”
- The fake Notice does not provide a new value. It encourages property owners to visit MeckPropertyReval.com to obtain the new value. The official Notice clearly states the 2019 value.
If you have received a fake Notice, please disregard it. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Mecklenburg County Assessor’s Office at 980-314-4226 or [email protected]. You can also visit the office in person at 3205 Freedom Drive, Suite 3500, Charlotte, NC.
EDITORS’ NOTE: Many Davidson residents have also received notifications from a property tax appeal company that suggest that property taxes are automatically going up, and that homeowners need professional assistance to appeal the county’s assessed value of their property. That too is fake. If you have questions about your revaluation contact the Mecklenburg County Assessor’s Office at 980-314-4226, or visit their appeals website. The formal deadline for appeals is May 20, 2019.
