This service is provided as a public convenience and the user assumes all liability/responsibility associated with the use of any and all information obtained through this site.

Please note that the assessed values for real estate properties are as of January 1, 2021. However, the property characteristics and ownership information (including sale dates and prices) are updated weekly. Values for personal property are assessed annually as of January 1.   Users of this website should understand that changes to official tax records may not be reflected on this website.

The maps included on this site are NOT to be construed or used as "legal descriptions." Every effort has been made to ensure the highest accuracy, but transcription errors or errors in source documents can occur. New Hanover County assumes no liability for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies in the information provided regardless of their cause, or for any decision made, action taken, or action not taken by the user in reliance upon any maps or information provided. These maps are for informational purposes only and may not represent actual conditions at the time of assessment.

The orthophotography (aerial photography) was acquired in 2021. If development has occurred since that time, it will not be shown in the imagery. Due to positional accuracy of the property lines on the parcel layer, the imagery and parcels may not have exact alignment. Precise determination of parcel boundaries must be made by a licensed surveyor using the location information recorded on the property deeds and/or survey plats on file with the Register of Deeds.

If you believe any data provided is inaccurate please contact our office to speak with the appraiser for your area. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding county holidays. Staff can also be contacted by email at TaxAdmin@nhcgov.com.
