The Land of the Sky Association of REALTORS (LOTSAR) will host a series of clinics to help residents of Buncombe County understand their property values. Volunteer realtors will be available to show residents their property cards, look at comparable properties, and provide information about the property value appeal process and available tax relief programs.
Events are being held across Buncombe County and realtors are available in-person and by phone during the following dates and times:
- Wednesday, Feb. 22, 6-8 p.m at Shiloh Community Center, 121 Shiloh Rd., Asheville, NC 28803
If you can’t make a clinic in person, you can call in during these times to be connected directly to an expert for help with your questions: 828-767-5398 or 828-712-3748.
Join Property Assessor Keith Miller and LOTSAR for an online presentation and Q & A, Monday, Feb. 27, starting at 3 p.m. Get more information here.
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 here.
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 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
