In accordance with North Carolina law, all taxpayers are required to list the following personal property each year during the listing period of January 1 through January 31:

  • Mobile Homes
  • Boats, Boat Motors, Jet Skis, etc.
  • Aircraft, including Hot Air Balloons and Gliders
  • Unlicensed Vehicles, including automobiles, trucks, trailers and motorcycles that are not currently licensed
  • Permanently tagged vehicles, (these vehicles have no expiration date on the tag) which may include Utility Trailers, Campers, Motor Homes, Motorcycles, Boat Trailers and Automobiles
  • Household goods used in connection with rental property which are supplied by the landlord for the tenant, such as refrigerator, stove, washer, dryer and window unit air conditioner.
  • Pets such as dogs and cats
  • Any improvements or deletions to real estate

Each year in late December, personal property listing forms are sent to all taxpayers that listed personal property for the prior year. If you do not receive a listing form and you have acquired property listed above, it is your responsibility to obtain a listing form by contacting the Personal Property Listing Department at 336-342-8305 for listing information. Failure to list personal property will result in a 10% penalty.
Because Rockingham County utilizes a permanent listing system for real estate, real property does not have to be listed unless a change in the property has occurred such as new construction, remodeling or deletion of buildings. If you have purchased or transferred ownership of property in the prior year, it is advisable to verify with the Real Property division that the transfer has been received and completed.
