Haywood to conduct property reappraisals

Haywood to conduct property reappraisals

The Haywood County Tax Assessors Office is currently conducting a comprehensive reappraisal of all properties within the county for the 2025 tax year.

This state-required initiative ensures property values are fair and accurate, reflecting today’s market conditions for everyone in our community.  

Every four years, the reappraisal process in Haywood County is crucial for property taxes. By reviewing property values, the county can set fair tax rates that match market changes, ensuring taxes are distributed fairly. 

“We are committed to upholding transparency and fairness in our property tax system,” said Judy Hickman, Haywood County Tax Assessor. “The reappraisal process allows us to accurately reflect changes in property values, ensuring that all property owners contribute their fair share to support essential services and infrastructure within our community.” 

Haywood County residents can expect to receive notifications regarding the reappraisal process well in advance. These notifications will provide important dates, steps, and resources for property owners to address any questions or concerns they might have during the reappraisal period. Property owners are encouraged to stay informed and engaged in the reappraisal process to better understand your valuation.

In an effort to keep the community well-informed, Haywood County tax officials are extending an invitation to interested groups for informational sessions. Contact Hickman at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to set this up.
