2020 Property Tax Listing Begins January 2nd

Post Date:12/18/2019 5:20 PM




All persons and businesses in Guilford County are required by North Carolina law to list for taxation before midnight January 31, 2020, personal property owned on January 1, 2020.  Additions, improvements and/or deletions made to real property during 2019 (examples: aluminum or vinyl siding, central heat and/or air conditioning, storage buildings or detached garages, and swimming pools) must also be listed with the Guilford County Tax Department.  Listings may be submitted in person, by mail, or for listings of property used in connection with a business, electronically via an on-line listing system.      

Personal property items including boats and watercraft, mobile homes, unregistered motor vehicles, aircraft, and property used in connection with a business are taxable and must be listed.  

Vehicles annually licensed in North Carolina are not to be listed on the personal property listing form, since property taxes for these vehicles are included and paid at the time a license plate is acquired or renewed.  However, vehicles which do not have a current North Carolina license plate, trailers registered on a multiyear basis, vehicles registered under the International Registration Plan (IRP), and vehicles owned and leased by public service companies are to be listed.  

If you do not receive a listing form by January 15th, you should call one of the telephone numbers below to request a form.  Listings submitted in person or postmarked after January 31, 2020 will be subject to a penalty.  Business listings submitted electronically after May 15, 2020 will be subject to a penalty. Unlisted property will be subject to discovery and penalty.   

The deadline for submission of applications for tax relief is June 1, 2020.  Homeowners sixty-five (65) years and older and homeowners totally and permanently disabled as of January 1, whose income (including social security) does not exceed $31,000, and honorably discharged veterans totally and permanently disabled may qualify.  Applications are online and available at the tax department.
