Tax Collections
The Tax Collector's Office is solely responsible for the collection of taxes and fees. Any questions regarding listing, billing, and assessed values should be directed to the Tax Assessor's Office.

Tax bills for real estate and personal property are mailed to all Davie County property owners in August of each year. If you do not receive your tax statement by September 15, please contact the Tax Collector's Office during regular office hours. Registered Motor Vehicle bills are mailed monthly. Taxes on real estate and personal property are due on September 1 and are payable through January 5. If January 5 falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the payment period is extended to the next business day.

Real estate taxes are the legal obligation of the owner of record as of January 1. Enforcement will be against the owner of record the day the taxes become delinquent and any subsequent owner. Ordinarily, taxes are prorated at the time of transfer of ownership. To determine if your taxes were prorated at the time of closing, contact your realtor or closing attorney.

To avoid interest or penalties, payment must be in the Tax Collector's Office or postmarked by the due date. If payment is not postmarked, it is deemed to be received when it is actually delivered to the Tax Collector's Office. To avoid penalties, we urge tax payers to mail payments at least 5 business days before the deadline. Real estate accounts that are past due are assessed a charge of 2% for the month of January and an additional 3/4% each month thereafter. Registered motor vehicle accounts that are past due are assessed a charge of 5% the first delinquent month and 3/4% each month thereafter.

North Carolina General Statutes require unpaid real estate accounts to be advertised in all local newspapers from March 1st until June 30th . There is an additional cost to the taxpayer for this advertising. Enforced collections will begin when bills become delinquent. Legal remedies of collection may include garnishment of wages, bank accounts, rents, foreclosure, and tax warrants.

The Tax Collectors Office will accept partial payments.  If a partial payment is mailed, a self addressed stamped envelope must be sent with payment in order for a receipt to be returned. You may now pay by credit card on this website.  Click Here  You will need to know your bill year, account number, and bill number.  There is a convenience fee for using credit/debit card payments.  Please note: credit cards cannot be used when paying in person.
