RUTHERFORDTON—County leaders continue to hear complaints about the recent property tax revaluations. Property owners across Rutherford County received their new valuations in the mail last month. The values are much higher than most people anticipated, and citizens who own property are concerned about what this means for their tax bills.

The county government administers the revaluation process, and uses the valuations to determine a county tax rate. Municipal governments also use the official county revaluations as they set the town tax rates.
