Tax Office Completes Taxpayer Transparency Initiative
The Mecklenburg County Office of the Tax Collector has completed the Taxpayer Transparency Initiative. This initiative addresses a request by the Board of County Commissioners to communicate to taxpayers how Mecklenburg County taxes are spent. The initiative was completed in two phases, with Phase I being completed with the 2016 annual billing and Phase II being completed with the 2017 annual billing.]
Phase I was accomplished by modifying tax bills to add a section titled “Mecklenburg Tax Allocation” to show exactly how each individual taxpayer’s County taxes are allocated to service areas within the budget.
Phase II expanded this to mortgage notifications that are sent to taxpayers who have escrow accounts. Please refer to this example.
As a result of completing Phase II, all real estate and personal property taxpayers have been informed of how their County tax dollars are allocated, increasing transparency.
