We are currently in a contract with Vincent Valuations Reappraisal Company to complete a full measure and list of all real property in our County. This team began work in August 2019. They will be visiting all properties in the county to verify that the tax information shown for your property is accurate. Members of the reappraisal team will be measuring the structures on all properties as well as taking photographs.
How to recognize our Team: Members of the Reappraisal Team will be in a vehicle with magnetic signs bearing the Harnett County Logo. They will be wearing neon vests with the County Logo and will carry Harnett County issued identification badges with their photo.
How long will this project take: Since Harnett County has over 67,000 parcels and growing, we expect this project to take one to two years to complete.
Every improved property will be visited during this time period.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our office at 910-814-6920. This phone line has been specifically set up to answer calls concerning the reappraisal project.
