Tax Listing Deadline Extended Thru February 15, 2013 by Forsyth County Commissioners
On January 1, 2013, the annual property tax listing period began. Listing forms were mailed on December 30, 2012, to real estate owners, and persons/businesses who listed personal property last year. Listings are not mailed on vacant property. All property owners are required by N.C.G.S. 105-285 to list any personal property owned as of January 1st and/or report any changes that have been made to real estate during the prior year. It is also an opportunity to correct any errors on personal information, names, mailing addresses, or request an application for Tax Relief. For more information regarding listing please see our FAQ section or call 336-703-2300 (option 2).
N.C.G.S. 105-307(a) states that the listing period runs through January 31; however, the Forsyth County Commissioners have approved an extension of the listing period thru February 15th per N.C.G.S. 105-307(b). Personal property that is listed after February 15th will be considered late and will be subject to a 10% penalty.
