The North Carolina General Assembly passed a new law to create a combined motor vehicle registration renewal and property tax collection system (Tag & 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). Click for more information
North Carolina’s new Tag & Tax System has been designed as a convenient way to pay annual vehicle tag renewals and vehicle property taxes.
Because registered vehicle billing is based on the date of registration, you may not receive a tax notice on every registered vehicle that you own at the same time. It is very important that the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles has your correct mailing address as the NCDMV will be mailing your notice to the address last given on your registration.
