How are my property taxes determined?
Ad valorem, or property taxes, are based on the "value" of your property as determined every eight years by the Dare County Tax Assessor's Office. The overall value of all properties within a taxing district, in our case Kill Devil Hills, is totaled and the ad valorem rate calculated based on calculated and carefully considered expenditures needs and anticipated revenues. The ad valorem tax rate is established at the time the annual operating budget is adopted. The budget must be in place by June 30th of each year and in their action to adopt the budget, the Board of Commissioners also establishes the tax rate.
