​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Business Personal Property​


   ONLINE LISTING OPENS JANUARY 1 AND CLOSES JUNE 30

Business personal property is all the personal property, income producing property, supplies, and leasehold improvements owned by a business or used by an individual for income purposes. ​


Businesses must list property owned as of January 1st at its historical installed cost. The Assessor’s business personal property appraisers will determine the depreciation schedules that apply based on the type of business (or property) being valued. Mecklenburg County uses the North Carolina Department of Revenue’s Cost Index & Depreciation Schedules for most business personal property.  


The following items are considered taxable business property in North Carolina and are required to be listed by the owner and are subject to tax based on their January 1st value.

For Standard Listing (Not Electronic Listing):

  • Contact information for individual filing the extension.
  • Request of extension showing good cause
  • Update to any account mailing address or physical location if known.


For New Businesses filing for the first time
Extension requests must contain the information required in the Standard Listing section above and the following additional information to create the Business Personal Property account:

  • Full mailing address
  • Physical location of the business/business assets


Extension requests received after January 31st are considered late and no extension can be granted. The Assessor has no legal power to override the status on late extensions or listings. A letter will be sent to the filers of any denied extension, notifying them of the decision.

Extensions missing required information may also be denied. Reasonable effort will be made to contact taxpayers for the needed information prior to denial.

Closing or selling a business involves several steps. When you opened your business, there may have been several other agencies you contacted that need to be notified you are now out of business or are selling your business. Some but not all are listed below:

You are required to notify the County Assessor’s Office and the Office of the Tax Collector at least 48 hours prior to the closure or sale of the business. They can be reached at 311 (inside the county) or 980-314-4226 (outside the county).

The best information about a business comes from the owner or principal officer. Providing this information in writing to the County Assessor’s Office and The Office of the Tax Collector is complying with the legal requirements and allows us to update our tax records and any tax liability associated with your business. This is much easier when you have all the paperwork and facts about the sale or closure on hand. Since we request this information be provided to the County Assessor’s Office in writing, you may do any of the following:

Walk-in at:
3205 Freedom Drive
Suite 3500
Charlotte, NC, 28208

Email: BPPEMAIL@MECKNC.GOV


Mail to:
County Assessor’s Office
Business Personal Property
P.O. Box 36819
Charlotte, North Carolina 28236-6819

This will ensure all your tax business with Mecklenburg County is complete.

The Tax Collector will determine if any tax liability is owed and let you know if you need to hold out funds from the sale of the assets to pay the taxes.

IMPORTANT: Taxes are not prorated by any Mecklenburg County office. Any proration is a private matter between the buyer and seller.
