Craven County's 2016 revaluation is underway and notices of the new assessed valuations were mailed to all real property owners on March 1, 2016.  If the owner agrees that the assessment is a reasonable estimate of the value as of January 1, 2016, there is no need to respond.  Taxpayers who disagree with the valuation estimate may appeal it by removing the bottom tear-off portion and returning it to the Craven County Tax Office.  Questions may be answered by either calling the Craven County Appraisal Office at 252-636-6640 or by emailing us at
