Video: Learn more about the property revaluation process

By the end of the month, every Buncombe County property owner should receive a notice in the mail from the Tax Office indicating the new value of their property for tax purposes. In this video, Buncombe County Public Relations Director Kathy Hughes discusses how those values are determined and what property owners should expect with Tax Director Gary Roberts.

The idea is to explain in simple terms what can be a confusing and misunderstood, but important topic.

“We’re going to be changing values on a lot of real estate, and we certainly want you to be in tune to what’s happening, how it’s going to affect you, and what your property taxes might be,” explains Roberts.

For more information about the 2013 Buncombe County Property Revaluations, please visit, or give the Tax Department a call (note that their lines will be busy when these notices are released so be patient) at 828.250.4940.
