Registered Motor Vehicles (tagged) includes any motor vehicle that maintains an active North Carolina license tag or registration.  The term “Motor Vehicle” includes automobiles, trucks, buses, campers, trailers, motorcycles and motor homes.  Registered motor vehicles (tagged) do not have to be listed with the County Assessor in January of each year.  Registering a new motor vehicle or renewing a current registration with the NCDMV constitutes a listing for property taxes.  The date of registration is the listing date for each vehicle and begins a twelve-month “tax year” for the vehicle.  Statements will be issued for each motor vehicle and taxes will become due on the first day of the fourth month after the vehicle is registered.  The value of the vehicle may be appealed to the County Assessor within 30 days of the billing date shown on the bill.  If after receiving your bill you have questions regarding the value, address, or tax districts applied, call our office at (252) 358-7810 or email sylvia.anderson@hertfordcountync.gov

For information regarding payment of motor vehicles taxes, refer to the Tax Collector’s Office.
