If you own property in Spartanburg County, you should have recently received your “Notification of Classification, Appraisal, and Assessment of Real Estate” form.
This notice is not a tax bill nor is it the amount of taxes to be paid. It simply notifies taxpayers of a change in their property’s value. The notice includes your new (2018) market value, the limited value, the assessed value, the assessment ratio, the number of acres or lots, the location of the property, and the map reference number. It also includes the appeal procedure you must follow if you disagree with the taxable value placed on your property.
If you disagree or have questions concerning the new value assigned to your property, you have 90 days from the date on the reappraisal notice to file an objection. This year that date is October 31. You must file a written notice of your appeal to the Office of the Spartanburg County Assessor, P.O. Box 5762, Spartanburg, SC 29304, and state why you believe the new appraisal is incorrect. Please provide any supporting documents or facts that substantiate your opinion of value. The appeal is based on the value of the property, not the potential amount of taxes.
