The Tax Administration exists for the listing, appraisal, assessment and collection of taxes on real and personal property as required by North Carolina General Statutes. This generates a primary source of revenue to fund all county agencies. The department also determines in which municipal district property is found and assesses and collects the revenue. It is responsible for placing a valuation on all property and keeping a list of current owners. Digital property maps are maintained in the department.
Tax foreclosures are listed on the bulletin board outside of the Register of Deeds office at the Granville County Courthouse.
Vehicle refunds are issued if tax payer does not have any delinquent taxes. Tax payer must turn the tag into the DMV office and send the receipt to the Tax Office in person, by mail, or email.
