Mecklenburg County Commissioners received another update Tuesday on what many call a problematic revaluation process during 2011.
Commissioners hired Pearson's Appraisal Service last year to review all 1300 neighborhoods in Mecklenburg County and note whether taxpayers paid too much or too little on their property values.
Thousands of taxpayers around Mecklenburg County insist they paid too much in property taxes, and want their money back.
"We've got to make a wrong a right," said taxpayer John Bradford.
Pearson's executive Emmett Curl tells WBTV, that many residents may have also paid less than their property value. County officials say in order to refund or charge taxpayers, lawmakers in Raleigh would need to get involved.
"Now that we know the process is flawed, let's go to Raleigh, let's ask legislators to give this county the permission to give refunds to all those that overpaid in 2011 and 2012," Bradford said.
Curl says he expects his company to complete work by July.
Former Mecklenburg County Tax Assessor Garrett Alexander was fired at the end of last year. His replacement is expected to be named in June.
