All real property (land and buildings) in Lincoln County is appraised by the Lincoln County Appraisal Department Staff. The amount of property tax you pay is based on the assessed value placed on your property as of January 1, 2019. The assessed value is multiplied by the tax rate per $100 of assessed value to calculate the amount of taxes due. Taxes are billed to the owner of property as of January 1 of the current tax year. Tax rates are set by the Lincoln County Commissioners in June of each year.
N.C. General Statutes requires a reassessment, or revaluation, of real property at least once every eight years. Lincoln County revaluations are conducted on a four year cycle. The current revaluation is effective January 1, 2019.
