NOTICE REGARDING THE NEW

MOTOR VEHICLE TAX SYSTEM

 

 The North Carolina General Assembly passed a new law to create a combined motor vehicle renewal and property tax system.  In doing so, the new law transfers the responsibility for motor vehicle tax collection from the 100 counties across North Carolina to the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). 

North Carolina General Statute (NCGS) 105-330.4(2) states that all county vehicle tax and registration is due at the time of registration which will be payable at the Tag Office.

The DMV will send a new combined notice that includes the vehicle registration and the vehicle tax and they will be due at the same time. 

ALL DELINQUENT TAX ON ALL VEHICLES MUST BE PAID
PRIOR TO REGISTRATION RENEWAL 

 

PLEASE REVIEW YOUR NOTICE FOR ACCURACY.

IT'S BEST TO RESOLVE ERRORS AT THE TAX OFFICE

BEFORE RENEWING YOUR TAG OR REGISTERING A NEW VEHICLE

AS REFUNDS COULD TAKE UP TO 2 MONTHS TO PROCESS.

 

 

 

 

Change of address is required within 60 days and can be made
