Mecklenburg County will mail 2019 bills for real property, individual personal property and business personal property taxes by July 31, 2019. Bills are due Sept. 1, 2019 and must be paid by Jan. 6, 2020 to avoid interest. The real estate bills will be based on the tax values established by the 2019 Revaluation.
This year, just over 390,000 tax bills will be mailed to taxpayers throughout the County. For certain properties whose tax records or value are under an informal or formal appeal, the respective tax bills will be subsequently mailed.
All tax bills paid on or after Jan. 7, 2020 will be assessed interest at a rate of 2% for January. Additional interest in the amount of 0.75% will be charged for February and every month thereafter until paid. Any taxpayer who may have difficulty paying their bill is encouraged to contact the Office of the Tax Collector in August. It is imperative that taxpayers do not wait until December or after the bill is delinquent to express concern with their ability to pay.
