As a personal aside, I have had the good fortune to live in many beautiful and extraordinary places, both domestic and international, and meet amazing people along the way. One thing has never changed: these mountains have a way of always calling you home. There is simply no place like it!
Three things you might find of interest.
(1) I lived and worked in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia for two years. What an experience!
(2) In January 2019, I hiked in Spain from Seville to Santiago de Compostela (aka Via de la Plata or the Silver Way). This was 626 miles in 28 days.
(3) I am passionate about supporting the Food Connection and MANNA FoodBank, whose primary focus is to eliminate food insecurity.

How is the tax bill of a home determined in North Carolina?
Real property is appraised at 100% of market value and includes land, buildings, structures, and improvements. State law requires counties to reappraise every eight years, but many counties reappraise every four. A bill can be a combination of tax rates. For example, a home inside the City of Asheville and Asheville City School districts will have three separate tax rates represented on a bill: the Buncombe County rate, the City of Asheville rate, and the Asheville City School rate. All rates are totaled to calculate the total tax liability. Tax rate estimates for our mountain communities can be found on page 127 of the Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks Welcome magazine.
