A number of meetings are planned for across the county as officials start to review the much-maligned 2011 property tax revaluation.
Many residents have complained about the revaluation because it resulted in property taxes going up for some homeowners, especially in south Charlotte and the Cornelius area, despite the housing market collapse and high number of foreclosures. The county argues the increase was seen because it’s been such a long time since a revaluation was done – in 2003 – and home values have increased since then despite the recession.
The county is reviewing the revaluation, and meetings are planned for each county voting district to allow local input. The Ballantyne-area meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 30, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Matthews Town Hall, 232 Matthews Station St. The SouthPark-area meeting is yet to be scheduled.
