Non-Profit & Other Exempt Programs

The North Carolina General Statutes provides for certain types of property to be exempt from taxation if they meet the requirements specified by the statutes. Every owner of property claiming exemption or exclusion from property taxes has the burden of establishing that the property is entitled to it and must file an application for the tax exemption or exclusion with the Cumberland County Tax Administration during the regular listing period, which is from January 1 through January 31 each year.
