Johnston County Reappraisal Process Begins This Week
For Immediate Release: February 21, 2023
Smithfield, NC – The 2025 Johnston County reappraisal process is currently underway. North Carolina General Statute 105-286 requires all counties to reappraise property at least once every eight years. The purpose of the reappraisal is to ensure property values accurately reflect market value and equitably spread the property tax burden among all property owners. The last Johnston County reappraisal was conducted in 2019 and all real property tax values reflect the market values as of January 1, 2019. When complete, property values will reflect the January 1, 2025 market value.
This week, Pearson's Appraisal Service, Inc. will begin field work that will continue through 2024. The revaluation vendor will be traveling around Johnston County in marked cars with signs that display, "Johnston County Revaluation Contractor." These cars will travel the entire County taking photographs of structures, which will help validate tax department information. Vendor staff will not be entering or requesting to enter any residents' homes or structures and will provide identification upon request.
If there are any questions or concerns regarding the reappraisal process or vendor vehicles, please call the Johnston County Tax Administration Office at 919-989-5130. For more information visit the Tax Administration Office website.
