Becky Sutton, Greene County Tax Administrator, will be retiring on July 31, 2021.
Sutton has 23 years of service with the Greene County Tax Department.
As the Tax Administrator, she oversees listing real and personal property, property appraisal, billing and collecting taxes, in-house revaluation, and maintenance of property records, Sutton has worked through three property tax revaluations, the most recent being 2021. Each North Carolina county is required by law to revalue all real property within its borders at least once every eight years.
“It’s really hard to leave a job that you love. Thank you all for allowing me to serve Greene County,” Becky Sutton said.
“Mrs. Sutton has always executed the task of Tax Administrator with absolute knowledge of the state and local general statutes and treated our taxpayers consistently. Dealing with tax issues is challenging at best. However, Mrs. Sutton has proven her desire and ability to be fair and do whatever is right within the law. She has been a valuable employee and will be assuredly missed. Thankfully, I feel we are poised with an appropriate succession plan and look forward to working with our new Tax Administrator. I certainly wish Mrs. Sutton much happiness in her retirement.” Bennie Heath, Greene County Board of Commissioners Chairman, said.
“I have always valued the leadership and professionalism Becky demonstrated and instilled in her department. We will certainly miss that.” Kyle DeHaven, Greene County Manager, said.
