County Assessor and Appraiser Certifications

North Carolina law requires the Department of Revenue to provide a certification and continuing education program for county assessors and appraisers. The following table may be used to verify data in our records for those individuals. If you believe the data in this table is incorrect, please notify David Duty in the Property Tax Section by email at david.duty@dornc.com. Our office will make every effort to respond to your concerns within 10 business days.

Due to delays in information being reported to our office and subsequent verification by our staff, continuing education credit earned may not appear in the table for up to five weeks or more from the end of a course.
