Start the year off on the right foot and make sure your home’s property record card is correct.

In North Carolina, January is the property listing month, and the Buncombe County Property Assessment office wants to make sure property owners are aware of the information that the office has on file.

All residential property owners in Buncombe County were recently mailed a property record card. This card outlines the information on file for your property. Please take the time to review your information and let the county know if it is incorrect. In the current column on the left, you can see the information we have on file. If any of this this information is incorrect, you can fill out the updated column (on the right). Use the additional comments section to include any other relevant notes like replacing a roof or HVAC system. Once your card is complete, you can tear it off at the perforation and return it to us in the mail. The county also wants to know if your information is correct; write that on the card and return to the office or note that on the website if you are submitting your information electronically. Watch this video for more help.
