​Avoid Paying Interest, Property Taxes are Due Jan. 6

1/6/2020

Real estate and personal property tax payments must be paid or postmarked (not metered) by the United States Postal Service on or before Jan. 6, 2020, to avoid interest charges. Tax bills were mailed to the owner of record at the address shown on the tax record as of Jan. 1, 2019.

Tax payments can be made online, by phone, by mail, or in person at our new location at the Valerie C. Woodard building, 3205 Freedom Dr. Suite 3000, Charlotte. Property owners whose payments are received or postmarked after Jan. 6, 2020 will be charged two percent interest for the month of January, and an additional three-quarters of one percent every month thereafter until paid. There are four ways to pay your tax bill:

  • Online at gov/paytax for a credit card, debit card or eCheck payment.*
  • By phone at 1-800-994-1026 for a credit card, debit card or eCheck payment.*
  • By mail with a check or money order and payment stub using the return envelope that accompanied the tax bill.
  • In person at the Tax Collector's new location in the Valerie C. Woodard Building, 3205 Freedom Dr. Suite 3000, Charlotte, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Only cash, money order, or check payments are accepted. Make checks payable to the Mecklenburg County Tax Collector.

*A service fee of 2.35 percent or a minimum of $1.95 is charged for credit card or debit card payments. There is no service fee for eCheck payments. According to North Carolina General Statute 105-348, failure to receive a tax bill does not invalidate the tax or interest charges. More information is also available on the Office of the Tax Collector's website.
