Businesses that have not listed the true value of their business property in Mecklenburg County have until Friday, Dec. 10, to complete the listing with the Mecklenburg County Assessor’s Office.
The Assessor sent a total of 16,646 bills to businesses this week seeking payment of taxes on their properties. The total amount of the tax with penalties and interest is valued at $430 million.
Individuals and businesses were encouraged, beginning in June, to comply with the requirement to list their property. For those yet to respond the County is extending the deadline to Dec. 10 before the assessor locks in an estimated value. Instructions for amending the assessment within this grace period are available by calling 704-815-3805.
