The Tax Assessor's primary responsibility is to appraise, list and assess all taxable real and personal property each year and furnish tax base figures to the County, Municipalities and Fire Departments for budget purposes.

Each year in late December, abstract listings are sent to all taxpayers that had a listing for the prior year. All personal property subject to annual listing must be listed during the month of January in order to avoid a 10% late listing penalty as mandated by State law.

Mission Statement

To create a fair, open, and efficient administration; to locate, identify, list, and appraise all property subject to taxation; and to collect those taxes to benefit the Citizens of Greene County.

Revaluation Information

Greene County's last octennial County Revaluation was completed January 1, 2013, in accordance with N.C.G.S. 105-286. North Carolina General Statute 105-283 requires that all property be valued at its "true value" in money. "True Value" shall be interpreted as meaning "Market Value", as of the date of the last reappraisal.

Collections

Motor Vehicles

The North Carolina General Assembly passed a law (Tag & Tax System) to create a combined motor vehicle registration renewal and property tax collection system.  Beginning September 2013, your annual vehicle inspection, registration renewal and property tax are all due the same month each year.  About 60 days before your vehicle registration expires, NCDMV will mail you a renewal notice to the mailing address they have on record.  The notice includes both your vehicle’s registration fees and taxes due. 

There are three convenient ways payments can be made:
 
The Greene County Tax Department will continue to handle:

  • Tax jurisdiction corrections
  • Refunds for the sale of a vehicle & tag surrender
