Hurricane Matthew Damage Information
Cumberland County was one of 27 counties in North Carolina declared a disaster area due to the effects of Hurricane Matthew that
devastated the area in early October. The Tax Administration office was part of the damage assessment team that documented much
of the damage to properties; however, if your taxable property, such as a commercial structure, your residential home, mobile
home, farm equipment, boat, etc., suffered damages or loss, please call (910) 678-7507 and ask the agent that answers your call
about how to report your loss to our appraisal department.
Because the damages from the hurricane occurred after January 1, 2016, no adjustment can be made to your 2016 real property tax
bill per NC General Statute. For our citizens that are experiencing difficulties paying their taxes, please ask for assistance in
setting up extended payment arrangements for your tax bill.
Please note that when you receive your 2017 NOTICE OF VALUE it may not reflect adjustments for properties that suffered loss
or damage. A second notice will be mailed out to reflect damage to your property that hadn’t been repaired as of January 1, 2017.
Our appraisal staff will be out in the field in January to specifically review hurricane damaged properties; however, if your
property was not fully repaired by January 1, 2017, please be sure to report this damage by calling (910) 678-7800 as it may
affect your 2017 property tax bill.
For information on assistance with other needs that may be available through FEMA , please go to
DisasterAssistance.gov or call 800-621-FEMA (3362) before January 23, 2017.
