residents of the Town are required to purchase and display
a Town Identification Decal on their automobile. The Town
VID is a tax and is issued for a one-year period each year.
Decals may be purchased at Town Hall between January 1st
and March 31st at a cost of $5. Thereafter, decals may be
purchased with an additional penalty charge of $10. The cost
of the decal is not to be prorated. Every motor vehicle,
required to be licensed in the state and a resident within
the town, must display a decal. Decals are placed on the
lower right corner of the windshield passenger side. Failure
to display a current decal may result in a fine.
The VID also assists in identifying residents of the town during times of natural
disaster and other emergencies. With the purchase of a VID, permanent residents and property owners receive a parking permit at no additional cost.
Permanent residents must provide a copy of N.C. Vehicle Registration with
their Carolina Beach address. Out of town property owners must show a copy
of New Hanover County tax bill or deed as well as a copy of their vehicle
registration. VIDs may be purchased by mail with proper documentation
and a self-addressed stamped envelope to Town of Carolina Beach, 1121 N. Lake Park Blvd., Carolina Beach, N.C. 28428.
