CHARLOTTE, NC — For some time now, Mecklenburg homeowners have voiced their disapproval over the 2011 Property Tax Revaluation. Many residents have struggled to pay the higher taxes, and hundreds have questioned whether the tax hike was in compliance with N.C. law.
Over the summer, Pearson’s Appraisal Service was hired by the County to perform an outside investigation. According to WBTV, Mecklenburg County Tax Assessor Garrett Alexander resigned Tuesday evening, around the same time the Board of County Commissioners received their final report on the 2011 Property Tax Revaluation.
Commissioners voted to delay any action on the report until Tuesday, November 27th. Several commissioners say they want to refund taxes to property owners. A refund is not guaranteed, and the North Carolina State Legislature would likely be involved.
