Mecklenburg revaluation bill passes

A bill that would redo Mecklenburg County’s 2011 property revaluation and ensure refunds to homeowners who were overcharged won final approval in the N.C. Senate Thursday.

Republican Sen. Jeff Tarte of Cornelius, the main sponsor, has said the bill would ensure a “fair and accurate valuation.”

A similar bill has been introduced in the House.

Both address problems with the county’s 2011 property revaluation, which triggered a flood of protests and appeals. An independent study ordered by county commissioners last year found widespread errors or discrepancies. Jim Morrill
