Unpaid county taxes sent to state for collection

CHARLOTTE —The Mecklenburg County Tax Collector is reminding property owners that if they have not paid their real estate, individual personal property and vehicle taxes for the year, their tax bills will go to the North Carolina State Department of Revenue for collection.

Any state income tax refund due the taxpayer may be applied to the debt. A $15 collection fee will be added to the bill if it is sent to the state. To avoid collection action, the property owner must pay the bill immediately upon notification by mail, or request a hearing within 30 days. An appeal hearing form is enclosed with the delinquency notification. There are roughly 113,000 tax bills that are eligible for the Debt Setoff program.

To pay your tax bill visit paytax.charmeck.org and use your credit card, debit card or eCheck or call 1-877-533-0072 and use your credit/debit card.

Taxpayers with questions about their bill, property listings or real estate valuations can call City-County Customer Service at 311.
