Application Forms for Tax Certification

Complete and mail a signed copy to both:

1. The County Tax Administrator for the County in which the facility is located (PLEASE NOTE: All
    requests for tax exemption by the taxpayer must also be made to the County Tax Administrator
    during the annual listing period per NCGS 105-282.1(a)(2), which is typically the month of January),


2. Two copies to the regional office of the Division of Air Quality (simply applying to the Division of Air
    Quality alone will not get your property exempted). Type or print in blue or black ink. A separate
    application is required for each facility where property proposed for tax certification is located.


If you have any questions regarding this application, please call the local tax office or the NC Division of Air
Quality Regional Office responsible for the county in which the facility is located
(see http://daq.state.nc.us/about/regional/ for regional contact information.
