Business Personal Property

Any individual(s) or business(es) owning or possessing personal property used or connected with a business or other income producing purpose must file a Business Personal Property Listing Form.

Business personal property includes:

  • Airplanes
  • Computers
  • Construction in Progress
  • Equipment
  • Farm Machinery
  • Fixtures
  • Furniture
  • Machinery
  • Supplies

All business personal property subject to taxation must be listed during the month of January. Values are determined by applying Trending Schedules to the historical cost of an asset. Trending schedules are developed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

If you listed with us last year and have an active account, a listing form will be automatically mailed to you. If you do not receive a listing form it is your responsibility to obtain a listing form by contacting the Business Personal Property Section during regular office hours.

North Carolina General Statutes allow for certain types of property to be exempt from taxation if they meet the requirements specified by the statutes. Organizations claiming exemption from North Carolina Personal Property Tax must file an application for exemption (PDF) by January 31.


Requests for extensions to file Business Personal Property must be made in writing and received prior to the close of the regular listing period, January 31. Extension requests can be mailed, faxed or emailed to our office. Traditionally, Pitt County has granted extensions until March 15. An online Extension Request can be found HERE.
