What documentation would be helpful if I appeal?
The way to appeal your value is to present an actual current appraisal, supported by local sales. If this is not possible, review sales in your neighborhood and present a comparison of property similar to your property, i.e. year built, size, construction material, etc. The Scotland County Tax Office can provide information for you to review to assist you in your own appraisal research.

Do not pay for an independent appraisal unless you feel it is absolutely necessary. It is in our best interest to work with you on questions you have concerning your property value. Remember that we are required to appraise all property, but we are still your best tools to ensure that your property was appraised accurately, fairly and uniformly.
