The Mission of the Vance County Tax Office is to ensure that all citizens are provided a fair, accurate and equitable ad valorem taxation process, while providing excellent customer service to all customers, both internal and external.
The Vance County Tax Office was established in its current form in 1927. Previous to that the county Sheriff was responsible for the collection of property tax.
In Vance County, the offices of the Tax Assessor and the Tax Collector are combined into a single office. This office is responsible for listing, appraising, assessing all real and personal, maintenance of all property maps, property ownership changes, the collection of all current and delinquent taxes, Hotel/Motel Occupancy taxes, and Beer and Wine licenses. The Tax Administrator is an appointed office. The Board of Commissioners makes the appointment as prescribed by the General Statues of North Carolina. The Tax Administrator reports to the Board of County Commissioners and serves at the pleasure of the Board, but it is also responsible to the County Manager, The Department of Revenue, Ad Valorem Tax Division and the Property Tax Commission in Raleigh and must uphold the laws of North Carolina by taking the oath of office as required by the laws of North Carolina.
