Tyrrell property tax bills have been mailed
Published 8:01 am Sunday, August 4, 2019
Property tax bills for about 4,300 parcels in Tyrrell County were mailed to landowners in mid-July.
The bills reflect the higher ad valorem tax on land plus buildings and other improvements on the land.
Ad valorem tax is based on the assessed value of an item, such as real estate or personal property.
The new rate in Tyrrell is 88 cents per $100 valuation, up from 84 cents last year.
The trash fee was increased from $200 to $225, and there’s the LCID fee of $35, too. (LCID fee is short for use of the county’s rubble field on Smith Lane.)
Thus, a $100,000 property is billed at $880 plus $225 plus $35, or $1140, which is $65 more than last time.
The bills are due Sept. 1, and penalties and interest will accrue beginning Jan. 7, 2020. Interest rate for payments made January 7-31 will be 2%, and 3/4% will be added each month thereafter.
Payments by credit or debit card are not subject to a user fee.
