2015 Property Tax Listing Information
The Listing period begins January 2, 2015 and is extended through February 28, 2015.
Real Property improvements or alterations made during 2014 should be reported to the tax office. Improvements can include such items as adding a room(s), finishing a basement, updating heating or air conditioning units, etc.
Personal property items that do need to be listed annually include manufactured (mobile) homes, unregistered motor vehicles/campers, multi-year or permanently tagged vehicles/trailers, and watercraft. (Motor Vehicles with an active annual NC license plate do not have to be listed. These are billed through the NCDMV Tag & Tax Together system.)
Personal property must be listed by February 28, 2015 to avoid penalty (10% of the tax levied). The annual listing of property is required regardless of the status of valuation appeals. Appeals should not delay or prohibit the listing of property during the listing period.
