Pearson’s to be paid up to $1.7M to fix Mecklenburg County assessment errors

Curl

CHARLOTTE — The next chapter in the saga of the 2011 Mecklenburg County property tax revaluation began May 17 when the Board of County Commissioners approved up to $1.7 million for Pearson’s Appraisal Services to identify and help fix major assessment errors in the county’s 1,300 neighborhoods.

Pearson’s has already found a roughly 10 percent major error rate in 200 neighborhoods. The Wilson, N.C.-based company will be paid $600 per day per person to find errors that affected property values in the 1,100 other neighborhoods — residential, commercial and mixed — Pearson’s project manager Emmett Curl said. Eight to 10 Pearson’s staffers will be used.

Pearson’s will then figure out how to correct errors and help county staff implement changes, Curl said.

“This could cost $100,000 or $1.7 million,” Curl said. “I’m in town until Friday coming up with a plan to attack this.”
