The Tax Department is responsible for listing, appraising and assessing all real estate, personal property and registered motor vehicles within Harnett County. We are also charged with the duty of collecting all current and delinquent taxes on real and personal properties.
We are required by law, G.S. 105-287, to reappraise real property at least once every eight years. On the recommendation of the NC Department of Revenue, the Harnett County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution to move to a four year appraisal cycle. Our next reappraisal is scheduled for January 1, 2022.
If you have any questions regarding the listing, appraising or billing of real estate, personal property or motor vehicles please call 910-893-7520.
Starting September 2, Harnett County Tax Department, located at 305 W.

We are currently in a contract with Vincent Valuations Reappraisal Company to complete a full measure and list of all real property in our County. This team began work in August 2019. They will be visiting all properties in the county to verify that the tax information shown for your property is accurate. Members of the reappraisal team will be measuring the structures on all properties as well as taking photographs.
How to recognize our Team: Members of the Reappraisal Team will be in a vehicle with magnetic signs bearing the Harnett County Logo. They will be wearing neon vests with the County Logo and will carry Harnett County issued identification badges with their photo.
How long will this project take: Since Harnett County has over 67,000 parcels and growing, we expect this project to take one to two years to complete.
Every improved property will be visited during this time period.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our office at 910-814-6920. This phone line has been specifically set up to answer calls concerning the reappraisal project.
