2018 Property Tax Bills
The 2018 Property Tax Bills were mailed Wednesday, July 18, 2018. The bills are due September 1, 2018 and delinquent after January 7, 2019. Payments can be made at the Tax Office, located inside the Dare County Courthouse, at the drop box located in front of the courthouse, or at the Dare County Water Department locations in Kill Devil Hills, Rodanthe, and Frisco. Electronic payments can be made through our website at darenc.com or payments can be mailed to the address listed on the tax bill.
Enclosed with the tax bills are a Tax Payment Plan option as well as an Authorization Agreement for Automatic Deposits. If you choose to take advantage of the Payment Plan option, you may divide out your payments in any manner that works for you, as long as the final payment is U.S. postmarked no later than January 7, 2019. This year we are offering a direct draw from your bank account for the payments. The withdrawals will be done on the 5th and 20th of each month in the amount you specify until the tax amount is paid in full. Due to the timing of mailing of the tax bills, the first electronic payment withdrawal will be done the last week of July, with the regular schedule of the 5th and the 20th of each month for the following months.
If you are interested in this option, fill out the appropriate form and return it to the address listed on the form. Please include current contact information and a voided check with your form.
Please feel free to contact our office at 252-475-5952 with any questions or concerns you may have.
