Tax listing forms mailed in Dare County

Published 10:52 am Tuesday, January 28, 2020

Tax listing forms have been mailed from the Dare County Tax Listing Office.

North Carolina General Statute 105-274 requires that all property, real and personal, within the jurisdiction of the state is subject to taxation unless it has been specifically excluded by statute.

Furnishings in a rental home, aircraft, boats, boat motors, jet skis, mobile homes, golf carts, non-tagged motor vehicles and multiyear and permanent plate tagged vehicles and trailers (i.e., boat, utility and animal trailers) are considered personal property.

These items must be listed for personal property taxation during the regular listing period, which is Jan. 1 through Feb. 18.

Complete the front of the tax listing form and mail the form in the provided envelope or deliver the form to the Dare County Tax Department by Feb. 18, 2020 to avoid penalty.

The county’s tax department is located in the Dare County Justice Center, 962 Marshall C. Collins Dr. in Manteo.

If you do not receive a tax listing form by Feb. 1, contact the Dare County Tax Listing Office at 252-475-5958 or 252-475-5965.

This year, Dare County is also conducting a property revaluation. Because of this, the tax listing form does not show a real property value. At its second meeting in February, Dare’s Board of Commissioners will receive a report on the revaluation. Following that Feb. 18 meeting, notices of real property value will be sent to all real property owners.

The notice will contain instructions for appealing the new property value.

After revaluation, Dare County is required to calculate and publish a revenue neutral rate. That rate will be published in the manager’s budget for Fiscal Year 2021.
