Notice: Your Tax Bill and the New Tax Law

Dare County Tax Collections does accept prepayments for 2018 taxes.  Please note our tax lien does not attach to the parcel until January 1 of every year.  Also, the tax rate is not adopted until June with tax bills being generated in July and therefore there is no guarantee that taxes will be paid in full with the prepayment.
Please consult a tax accountant regarding eligibility for income tax deductions on prepaid ad valorem taxes.
All prepaid taxes are NON-REFUNDABLE.
