In North Carolina, property taxes are levied annually against all real property, business equipment and vehicles by each municipality and each county. Taxes (except for those on motor vehicles) run according to the calendar year - January 1 through December 31. Tax are due September 1st each year taxes become delinquent after January 5th.
Tax payments can be mailed to Collector of Revenue, 500 N Main Street, Tarboro, NC or paid at Town Hall during business hours.  When making your payment, please be sure to send the bottom portion of your tax bill or write your account number on the check.

Property Owners with Mortgages

Many homeowners with a mortgage have funds held in escrow by their mortgage company to pay property taxes.  The mortgage company usually pays the tax bill directly to the Town, but mix-ups can occur.  If the mortgage company changes, the homeowners should contact the Tax Collector with this information. The property owner, not the mortgage company is penalized if the bill isn’t paid.
