More information about these events can be found at https://lotsar.org/property-value-appeal-clinics/.
The appeal clinics coincide with the property listing period for Buncombe County. Volunteers from LOTSAR can help residents understand how the market has affected their property value and connect them to programs for filing extensions, accessing payment plans, and accessing property tax relief programs for Veterans, anyone age 65 and older, or anyone permanently disabled under NCGS 105-277.
Legal assistance will be available for those who qualify from Pisgah Legal Services, and staff at these events can connect eligible residents with an application for support in filing an appeal.
All residents can always access their property card, forms and information for appeals, and listing forms at buncombecounty.org/propertyassessment.
Property assessment staff are also available for questions by phone at 828-250-4940; for in-person visits at the assessment office at 155 Hilliard Ave, Asheville, NC, between 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday; or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
