Welcome Home: The Tax Men Cometh

Wilmington, NC – For the next two weeks WHQR will probe into affordable housing options in our region. We start our series, Welcome Home, with the property revaluations that took place earlier this year in Brunswick and New Hanover Counties.

WHQR's Catherine Welch sat down to talk with both counties tax administrators.

New Hanover County's tax office sent property owners a Valentine of sorts last February 14th in the form of a revaluation notice, showing homeowners how much their property is now worth.

Brunswick County sent its revaluation notices back in March. State law requires property revaluations at least every eight years.

Brunswick County Tax Administrator Tom Bagby says his county conducted its last revaluation four years ago and no sooner did he finish that one than he ramped up this year's revaluation.

Conducting a revaluation is a complex affair. So we start the conversation with New Hanover County Tax Administrator Bob Glasgow talking about how it works.
