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.

Brief History:

The Vance County Tax Office was established in its current form in 1927.  Prior to that, the County Sheriff was responsible for the collection of property taxes.

Department Overview:

In Vance County, the offices of the Tax Assessor and the Tax Collector are combined into a single office under the Tax Administrator.  The Tax Administrator is an appointed office and the Board of County Commissioners makes the appointment as prescribed by the General Statutes of North Carolina.  The Tax Administrator reports to the Board of County Commissioners and serves at the pleasure of the Board, but 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 and statutes of North Carolina by taking an oath of office.

The Tax Office is responsible for listing, appraising and assessing all real and personal property in the County, as well as carrying out property ownership changes.  The Tax Office is also charged with the collection of all current and delinquent property taxes and administers hotel/motel occupancy taxes and beer and wine licenses.
