North Carolina General Statutes require that all persons must annually list property that is subject to taxation within the time period of January 1 through January 31
Real estate in Anson County is permanently listed and does not require an annual listing. If you have received a listing form in the previous year for listing your property, a listing form will automatically be mailed to you at the address of record as of January 1. If you do not receive a listing form and you have property which is required to be listed, it is your responsibility to obtain a listing form by contacting the Individual Personal Property Section of the Assessor's Office during regular office hours. A listing form is required if one or more of the following apply:
- You have made improvements to your real estate during the previous year. Maintenance such as painting/wallpaper, replacements of existing structure, landscaping, etc. is not considered an improvement and does not require listing.
- You own unregistered vehicles which do not have an active North Carolina registration.
- You own other reportable personal property such as boats, boat motors, jet ski's, etc.
- You own miscellaneous non-household personal property such as tractors, horse tack, etc.
- You own a mobile home.
If you have purchased real estate as of January 1 or your property was reviewed for any purpose, you may receive a listing form to review the information we have on file. Please make any necessary corrections, verify your social security and telephone numbers, sign, date and return the form to our office. Failure to list within the required period will result in a penalty of 10% of the total tax levied.
