With the new year comes the duty of all property owners to list your property with the County Tax Department for taxes. The regular listing period for 2016 begins on January 4, 2016 and ends on January 31, 2016. Listing forms will be mailed to all persons who listed personal property last year.

All boats & motors, mobile homes, aircraft, unlicensed motor vehicles (including unlicensed trailers), permanent tagged trailers, international registered tagged vehicles, farm equipment and business personal property must be listed every year.

If you own any personal property that should be listed and you have not received a listing form in the mail by the end of the first week in January you should contact the County Tax Department to obtain a listing form. If you have a question about what should be listed you should contact the County Tax Department (338-5169 or 338-6107).

The Pasquotank County Tax Department is located in the building formerly known as the Public Library across from the Pasquotank County Courthouse on East Main Street in Elizabeth City and is open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. The tax department will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr Day on January 18, 2016.

All persons who own property subject to listing for taxation who fail to list such property during the regular listing period shall be subject to penalties prescribed by law.

All unpaid 2015 taxes are delinquent after January 6, 2016 and become subject to any and all collection remedies permitted by law.

The Pasquotank County Board of Commissioners has authorized the tax collector to implement such legal collection remedies as are necessary for the collection of all delinquent taxes.

Emergency Notification System

Pasquotank County now utilizes Code Red as its county-to-resident notification system. With this service, Emergency Management can send personalized voice messages to residents and businesses within minutes with specific information about time-sensitive emergency situations. TheCodeRed service will be used to supplement our current communication plans and augment public safety/first responder services.

For residents, typically your home phone number is already in our database; however, we encourage you to provide us with your cell phone number and/or additional contact information for priority calling. In most cases we will be sending calls to only one phone number so you should prioritize your contact information based on the number that would be most successful in getting the message to you quickly.

We also know that your personal information is important, and rest assured that we will not share it with anyone. If you would like to provide additional contact information, click the CodeRed  image to sign up.
