Remember that the big question here is, "What was the market value of your property on January 1, 2019"?
For real property appeals, we encourage you to first file an informal appeal with the Lee County Appraisal Department by filling out the Informal Property Review Request Form above and submitting it to the Appraisal Department located at 106 Hillcrest Dr., Sanford, NC 27330.
Anyone wishing to further appeal their value should fill out the Board of Equalization & Review Form above. The Board of Equalization & Review typically meets sometime during the last week of April. Notice of their meetings will be advertised in the Sanford Herald during March and/or April of every year. Appeals will not be accepted once the Board of Equalization & Review has adjourned.
Anyone wishing to appeal before the North Carolina Property Tax Commission (PTC) must first go through the Lee County Board of Equalization & Review appeal process.
Appealable issues versus Non-appealable issues
We strive to take a "value snapshot" of the County as of January 1, each year. In order to incorporate new construction, including remodeling, we use the same appraisal manual and methods (Schedule of Values) used to appraise properties that were in existence for the 2019 Reappraisal. By doing this, we believe everyone is paying their "fair share" of annual tax dollars to the County and Municipalities.
