Q. Does Mecklenburg County sell tax liens?A. No. The requirement to sell tax liens was abolished by the legislature in 1983. The sale of a tax lien is different from the sale of the property by way of a tax foreclosure action for failure to pay taxes.
Q. Does Mecklenburg County advertise tax liens on real property?A. Yes. Each year, the Office of the Tax Collector advertises in The Charlotte Observer the names of all persons who have not paid Real Estate and Personal Property taxes for the previous year. This is simply a reminder to the specific taxpayers and to the public of the unpaid taxes for the previous year.
