The Harnett County Tax Department is currently undergoing the 2026 Tax Reappraisal.

Harnett County, as well as all other counties in the State of North Carolina, are required to reappraise all real property at least once every 8 years, G.S. 105-287. Harnett County's last reappraisal was effective Jan. 1, 2022. On the recommendation of the NC Department of Revenue, the Harnett County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution to move to a four-year reappraisal cycle. The next reappraisal is currently scheduled for Jan. 1, 2026.

The Reappraisal process, also known as Revaluation, is designed to update all real property values to reflect its most current market value as of January 1, of the reappraisal year. Once these values have been established they will be maintained until the next reappraisal.

In order to establish these values, the County uses many resources including but not limited to the following: onsite inspections of the property, zoning and soil classifications, review of fee appraisals, deeds, market sales, aerial and street view photography as well as working with independent appraisal contractors. This process takes about two to three years of intense research to complete.

“Reappraisal is always a challenge, because the goal is to appraise tens of thousands of properties all at one time, and in a way that is fair and equitable to all property owners. We strive to follow established industry standards for mass appraisal; however, we recognize that there will be situations where the mass appraisal approach may produce an estimate of value that seems high or low for an individual property,” shared the county on the reappraisal page. “We are committed to working with all property owners to ensure that every property is appraised at a reasonable estimate of its Jan. 1, 2026 market value.

The Harnett County government is encouraging citizens to contact the tax department with any questions or concerns at 910-814-6920.
