Board of Equalization SEARCH AND PAY TAXES
 North Carolina General Statute 105-322 establishes the Board of Commissioners as the Board of Equalization and Review.  This Statute also allows the Board of Commissioners to establish a special Board of Equalization and Review to hear tax valuation appeals. This special board may or may not include any of the Commissioners.  Each year the Burke County Board of Commissioners establishes this special Board. It consists of 5 regular members and 2 alternate members who are all property owners and residents of Burke County none of which are Commissioners. This special board hears and makes valuation decisions only. They cannot consider taxes or the ability to pay taxes in their decisions.  After being presented the facts from the taxpayer and the Tax Assessor they will render a decision for either: no value change, a reduction in value, or an increase in value.
