NOTICE:  Your Vehicle Registration is Changing!

 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.

How Does This New Legislation Change Things?

Currently, vehicle registration and taxes are processed separately.  First, you receive notice and pay your vehicle registration.  Then three months later, you receive notice and pay your vehicle tax.  This occurs separately because the counties are responsible for managing vehicle taxes and the DMV is responsible for managing vehicle registration.

For the next renewal of this vehicle, 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. 

** PLEASE REVIEW YOUR NOTICE FOR ACCURACY.  IT'S BEST TO RESOLVE ERRORS WITH THE TAX OFFICE BEFORE RENEWING YOUR TAG.**
