The County Commissioners continue to receive more information concerning the revaluation issues raised by our many citizens, the Cornelius Board and the Pearson report as they try to figure out how to correct the whole situation. Recently the County Attorney provided the County Board with a confidential report on legal considerations in correcting it, including the adoption corrective legislation in the state legislature. The County Attorney solicited input from the towns on this topic to include in his report. Your Town Board sent its position on correcting this situation to the County Attorney as follows, and he included it in his report: “The Town would support the County: 1. Fixing the 2011 revaluation (and seeking legislation to do so if necessary) such that resulting property values being used in calculating tax levies (for the county and towns) from 2011 on are based on an accurate appraisal; and 2. Providing property owners overcharged for property taxes due to the 2011 revaluation refunds (for county and town taxes) for each year they were overcharged and interest at the legal 8% rate on such refunds.”
Cornelius continues to push for fair and proper correction of this problem for its citizens and will continue to be engaged with the County and the state legislature, should legislation be proposed. This site will be updated periodically to provide current information on how the correction process is going.
