Johnston County Tax Administration Revaluation



Johnston County Tax Administration Revaluation
February 28, 2017


Smithfield, NC -- Johnston County has partnered with Pearson Appraisal Service to perform the state mandated 2019 Revaluation of all Real Property in the County.  In North Carolina, revaluations are required at least once every eight (8) years; Johnston County’s last revaluation was in 2011.

The main focus of any revaluation is the equalization of property values. A county-wide Revaluation is an in-depth process of reappraising all properties in the county and determining each property’s current market value. 

The 2019 reappraisal will include the use of county maps, aerial photography, street level images, sales analysis, field visits, and other tools to gather data used in determining market value.

Johnston County Appraisers and Pearson Appraisal Staff are out reviewing properties and photographing buildings in the county.  During the field visits, photographs are typically taken from the public right- of -way and no one will request to view the inside of your home. 

All appraisers will wear county identification badges and their vehicles will be marked, “Johnston County Revaluation” or “Johnston County”. 

The county appreciates your interest, patience, and cooperation with this important project.

Contact the Johnston County Tax Office at (919) 989-5130 if you have questions.
