The Person County Tax Administration Department is comprised of four divisions:

The Real Property Division appraises and assesses all real property in the county at its fair market value as of the effective date of the most recent reappraisal.

The Personal Property Division is responsible for the listing and auditing of personal property as well as sending out the annual tax bills and the monthly vehicle bills.

The Tax Collector's Division, as mandated by the North Carolina General Statutes, is responsible for collecting annual property tax bills on real estate, mobile homes, boats, business personal property, aircraft and other properties, in addition to any other fees or assessments as charged by the governing body. Also, the Collector's Office is responsible for the collection of taxes that are levied by all of the municipalities, fire districts, and special districts in Person County. These bills are mailed in July. The deadline for paying these taxes is January 5th of the next year. Beginning January 6th, these taxes are considered delinquent and accrue interest at a rate of 2% for the month of January, plus ¾ % each month thereafter.

Delinquent taxes are subject to collection action as authorized by the North Carolina General Statutes. These actions may include garnishment of wages, attachment of bank accounts, Debt Setoff of delinquent tax bills from individual North Carolina tax returns and lottery winnings, levy (seizure) of personal property, and foreclosure of real estate.
