Tax Collections

The Tax Collector's Office is solely responsible for the collection of taxes and fees. Any questions regarding listing 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. 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, Sunday, or holiday 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. Proration is a courtesy between buyer and seller please contact your realtor or attorney to verify civil liability.

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 requires a tax collector to advertise delinquent taxes from the current fiscal year that are liens on real property between March 1 and June 30. This advertisement must be published one time in one or more newspapers having general circulation in the taxing unit. 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.
