In North Carolina all property tax laws are determined by the State Legislature. The Tax Assessor and Tax Collector is sworn to uphold and administer these laws uniformly and equitably. The tax rates applied to all County property assessments are determined by the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners, individual fire districts and the various city and town councils. These rates are established in June of each year in preparation of tax bills which are mailed in late July.
We strive to provide equitable cost effective administration of the property tax in Rockingham County, complying with all legal directives in an atmosphere citizen clients can trust.
