BURGAW – Pender County Tax Administrator Melissa Radke announced Pender County officials and representatives from Vincent Valuations, a contractor hired by Pender County, are updating property tax records with visits to various homes within the county.
“Our staff and our contractors have proper identification when approaching a property,” said Radke. “Lanyards are worn, and our representatives will knock on the door in hopes of speaking with homeowners before taking exterior photographs and measurements.”
Pender County representatives will visit properties over the next six weeks to complete these field visits.
“The properties we are measuring and photographing are properties that have requested permits over the last three years,” explained Radke.
Radke stressed that Pender County tax department representatives do not ask to enter a structure or take photographs of the interior of a home.
“We are working to ensure that property records are up to date and accurate by visiting these properties and taking exterior measurements and photographs,” said Radke. “If any resident has concerns or questions, please call the tax assessor’s office at 910-259-1221.”
