The Mission of the Edgecombe County Tax Collections Department is to maximize the collection of levied taxes and revenues to fund the services of County Government.

We are guided by the principle that everyone will be treated fairly and with the up most respect.

We will excel in customer service and conduct our business in a polite, fair, and professional manner. We are firm when necessary, recognizing that some of our clients who attempt to avoid their payment, will at times misconstrue our firm but fair action.

We conduct our duties with uncompromising integrity; anything less is unacceptable.

We value our dedicated employees that fulfill this Mission. We value their excellence, dependability, effective teamwork, accuracy, productivity, plus their caring and positive attitude.
