BURGAW – The Pender County Tax Department is finalizing the 2019 Pender County re-evaluation. Tax values will be effective January 2019. The tax office is attempting to capture significant storm-related damages that have occurred during Hurricane Florence.
“We need our property owners in Pender County to report damage to us,” said Justian Pound, Pender County Tax Assessor. “If we know about damages now we will attempt to reflect those damages that are still affecting property as of January 1. We know our properties have been impacted across the county, so please contact the tax office at 910-259-1221.”
Pound said the 2019 evaluation notice would do the department’s best to reflect damages. However, residents will always have the right to appeal that notice. Instructions for appeal will be included in the 2019 valuation notice.
