​​​​​​​​​​​In​dividual Personal Property


    ONLINE LISTING OPENS JANUARY 1 AND CLOSES JUNE 30
Individual Personal Property is property owned by an individual or individuals for personal use. If the property is located in Mecklenburg County, or stored or housed at a storage facility, marina or aircraft hangar in Mecklenburg County as of January 1st, it is taxable in Mecklenburg County.

The following items are considered taxable personal property in North Carolina and are required to be listed by the owner and are subject to tax based on their January 1st value. Property tax rates are based on the physical location of the property and are set by the County Commissioners and Municipalities annually.

Examples of individual property
(Boats, Aircraft, Mobile Homes, Unregistered Vehicles/Motorcycles, Multi-Year Tagged Trailers of all kinds (Permanent Plated) Untagged Trailers, and Untagged Campers and RVs)

The Personal Property Appraisers use January 1st pricing guides for the type of property being valued as the primary resource. The value guides use sales data to determine market values for January 1 of the listing year.In some cases, an alternative method - like depreciation or comparable pricing - may be used.

If you own personal property that must be listed and did not receive a listing form, you may use our NEW Online Listing System IPP.Taxscribe or you may download a copy of a Blank Listing Form or contact the Assessor’s Office at 980-314-4CAO (4226) or IPPEMAIL@MECKNC.GOV to request a form.

If your mailing address or physical location of the property has changed during the past year and you have not updated your address with the Assessor, you must fill out the address change form to update our records.

If you are over the age of 65 or totally and permanently disabled or a disabled veteran with a service-connected disability, you may qualify for tax relief on a mobile home that serves as your primary residence.

Individual Personal Property Listing extension requests may be filed electronically using the IPP Taxscribe System for electronic listing, submitted no later than January 31st. An e-mail receipt of the filing will be sent to the e-mail entered in the IPP Taxscribe System. You may also file in person at our County Office located at:

Valerie C. Woodard Building
3205 Freedom Drive, Suite 3500
Charlotte, North Carolina 28208


Individual Personal Property Listing Extension Requests may also be mailed via the U.S. Postal Service with a U.S. Postal Service Postmark of no later than January 31st to the address below:

Sold, Junked or Moved Property

If you have sold or junked property for which you have received a listing or discovery, you must provide proof of the sale, or some other compelling evidence that you did not own the property as of January 1st.

The following are examples of proof of Sold or Junked property:
  • A Bill of Sale signed by both the seller and the buyer with contact information for the buyer (new owner)
  • A title in the new owner’s name
  • Cancellation of insurance for the property
  • Receipt for charitable donation of property
  • Receipt from the person or company receiving the junked property

If you have moved the property out of Mecklenburg County (or North Carolina), you must provide proof that the property was moved out of the County prior to January 1st of the taxing year.

The following are examples of proof of moved property:
  • Update to wildlife registration showing your watercraft in another county or out of state
  • Tax bill for the property from another county
  • Copy of contract for a storage facility, marina, aircraft hangar or mobile home park outside of Mecklenburg County showing the date your property transferred to their facility.

If the property was sold or moved after January 1st of the taxing year, you are still responsible for listing the property and paying the related tax bill that is usually mailed in the Fall.
