The Halifax County Assessor is responsible for assessing all taxable real property in Halifax County per North Carolina General Statutes (NCGS).
Real property includes land and structures or improvements on the land. A system for automatically listing real property each year in Halifax County is made possible through coordinated efforts of the planning departments in both the County and the municipalities, the Register of Deeds and the Tax Department.
Real property owners are required to list each January if there any changes to the property including new construction, additions, renovations or demolitions. In order to assist with this requirement, the Tax Department mails an abstract to taxpayers in late December each year with instructions for properly listing their property.
Real property is valued at its “true value” or “market value” as of the County’s last reappraisal which became effective January 1, 2020. The next reappraisal will have an effective date of January 1, 2024.
