The Tax Department lists, assesses, and collects taxes on nearly 24,000 real property parcels, over 28,000 motor vehicles, and approximately 1,500 businesses and personal property listings in Currituck County. It is the Assessor’s responsibility to assure that all properties are appraised fairly and equitably.
Beginning in September 2013, your annual vehicle inspection, registration renewal and vehicle property tax will be due the same month each year.
Only one payment – made either in person, online or by mail – is required to pay both the annual tag and tax for your vehicle.

What This Department Does
Ad Valorem Tax-- (Latin for "according to value") A tax imposed on properties in proportion to each one's value. The most common are the ad valorem taxes imposed on real and personal property, which are based on the assessed or appraised values.
Appraised Property Value-- Also known as Actual or Fair Market Value, is the true market value of a property.
Assessed Property Value-- The value as determined by the assessor and the value on which a property will be taxed. This value is the estimated actual value of a property on the date of the last county-wide revaluation. (If a property did not exist at the last revaluation its assessed value will be what the actual value would have been had it existed at the time of the last revaluation.
