Frequently Asked Questions
How are property taxes assessed?
Greenville's last revaluation was in 2003; therefore we use 100% of 2003 values for our assessments. As the market value changes, so does the level at which we assess property. 100% of 2003 value is 80.00% of 2013 value.
If I make a home improvement, when will my taxes change?
Any changes made after March 1 will be captured in the assessment for the next March 1st. If your home or an improvement is partially complete by March 1st, the assessed value wiil reflect that. A Change of Assessment notice will be sent in May.
If I disagree with my tax assessment, what can I do?
Assessments can be discussed with the Assessor throughout the month of May. If an agreement cannot be reached with the Assessor, you can file a formal review with the Board of Assessment Review. "Grievance Day" will be held on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 from 4 pm until 8 pm.
