Appeals of Personal Property

Personal property and motor vehicle appeals must generally be filed within 30 days of the date of the bill.  If a separate written notice of value (other than the bill) was sent to you, then the appeal must be filed within 30 days of the date of that notice.

Your appeal should include any supporting documentation that will assist us in reviewing the appeal. This documentation can be faxed, mailed or emailed to our office.


Documentation that will be considered for a vehicle value appeal:

  • A valid copy of the bill of sale
  • Pictures of the vehicle documenting its condition (must include visible picture of back of vehicle with license plate, right and left size, front view, engine and inside images of seat, console dashboard).
  • Documented verification of high mileage on vehicles. (i.e. current vehicle inspection, service receipt, or oil change)
  • Repair estimate cost for vehicles that have been significantly damaged.

Each year in late December, abstract listings are sent to all taxpayers that had a listing for the prior year. All personal property subject to annual listing must be listed during the month of January in order to avoid a 10% late listing penalty as mandated by State law. Because Pitt County utilizes a permanent listing system for real estate, real property does not have to be listed unless a change in value has occurred. Persons listing real or personal property for the first time should contact the Tax Assessor's Office for listing information. In addition to listing services, the Assessor's office provides property maps of Pitt County.

The Tax Assessor's primary responsibility is to appraise, list and assess all taxable real and personal property each
year and furnish tax base figures to the County, Municipalities and Fire Departments for budget purposes.
