I. PROPERTY TAXES IN NEW BERN AND CRAVEN COUNTY

Newcomers are usually pleasantly surprised at the property taxes in New Bern, North Carolina. Properties outside the city limits are only subject to county taxes and the township/ fire district taxes to which they belong.

CRAVEN COUNTY and NEW BERN PROPERTY TAX RATES

All real property is assessed on a tax rate per $100.00 of assessed value. Depending on where you live, some districts in Craven County also pay a special fire tax included in the city tax. This is used to help fund the voluntary fire departments.

Property Tax rates are set every eight years by the county and the city. The last Craven County and City of New Bern tax rate revaluation was done in 2010.

To view the current real estate and personal property tax rates for Craven County and specific municipalities and fire districts in the County, including the city of New Bern, Havelock, River Bend, Trent Woods, and Vanceboro, etc., click on this link and then scroll down to the link for County and Municipal Tax Rates.

CRAVEN COUNTY PROPERTY ASSESSMENTS

What is my Property Tax Assessment?

To check your property's assessed value, visit the Craven County GIS Maps site or call the County Tax Assessment office. Click on the link for MAPS and enter the address of the property for which you wish to check the property tax rates.


II. TAX LISTING

All Craven County residents including those within the City of New Bern limits are required to list both personal property as well as real property for taxes.  Property should be listed with the Craven County Tax Assessor's office.

More information on procedures for listing can be obtained by calling the Craven County Tax Listing office at 252-636-6604.  The property listing period begins on January 1st and runs through January 31st of each year.


III. PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX

NON-LICENSED VEHICLES PROPERTY TAX

Examples of Non-Registered Personal Property that are taxed by the county can be found on the Tax Listing Link and may include:

  • mobile homes, boats and boat motors, jet skis, and aircraft
  • all unlicensed (untagged) vehicles including:
    • trailers
    • campers
    • semi trailers
    • motorcycles
  • income-producing farm machinery.

REGISTERED NC MOTOR VEHICLE PROPERTY TAX
 

The North Carolina property tax system requires counties to assess the values of motor vehicles registered (those requiring license plates) with the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (NC-DOT DMV) and to prepare tax bills.

Refer to the NC DMV web site for more information.

The DMV is not involved in establishing the value of a vehicle for property tax purposes. Once a vehicle is registered, the DMV furnishes a record of the make and model of the registered vehicle, and the vehicle owner's local county assessment office determines the tax accordingly.

Three months after the motor vehicle’s registration renewal date, the vehicle owner will receive a separate personal property tax bill just for the registered vehicle which is payable on the first day of the following month.

North Carolina residents who have not yet registered their vehicles or who have not renewed their vehicle registrations are still required to list their vehicles with their county of residence by January 31 of each year.

EXEMPT VEHICLES: The NC Motor Vehicle Property Tax law covers all motor vehicles except:

  • vehicles exempt from registration by North Carolina law;
     
  • manufactured homes;
     
  • mobile classrooms and offices;
     
  • semi-trailers registered on a multi-year basis;
     
  • motor vehicles owned or leased by public service companies; and
     
  • vehicles in confidential status.
