Please see this link for information about an important public hearing held on April 1, 2024.

Granville County intends to amend the Granville County Real Property Assessment Manual (2024) known as the schedules of values, standards, and rules as required by G.S. §105-317 by replacing pages 352 through 360. Such replacement pages have been submitted to the Granville County Board of Commissioners and are available for public inspection in the Assessor’s office at 141 Williamsboro St., Oxford NC and at this link.

The original adopted Real Property Assessment Manual (2024) is available for review at this link.

The reason for the replacement of these pages is that the 2018 neighborhood adjustment factors were included in the 2024 Property Assessment Manual in error.  Granville County’s tax  software had the correct neighborhood adjustment factors reflecting fair market value for 2024 revaluation so no errors in appraised value arose from the erroneous inclusion of the 2018 neighborhood factors in the Property Assessment Manual.


The purpose of a property tax revaluation is to ensure that tax values of properties accurately reflect their true market value and that all county property owners are receiving fair and equitable treatment regardless of the location or age of their property. Not all properties increase in value at the same rate, which is why a regular revaluation is necessary.

Granville County last completed a property revaluation in 2018 and historically the county completed this process once every eight years. The North Carolina Department of Revenue notified Granville County that tax values and sale prices were becoming increasingly disproportionate and strongly recommended that the process be moved up. Due to the unprecedented rise in property values since 2020, property owners can expect to see a dramatic increase in the assessed values of their properties.

A dramatic increase in assessed value does not mean that your property tax bill will increase. In fact, as part of the revaluation process the county is required to identify a “revenue-neutral tax rate.” This would be the tax rate that would allow Granville County to collect the same amount of revenue based on the new assessed value of all county properties. Some taxpayers may see a lower tax bill at the end of this process if their property valuation decreased below the county-wide average. The Board of Commissioners will ultimately decide what tax rate to levy based on the needs identified during the annual budget process.
