When using a debit or credit card there will be a convenience fee charged to your transaction. The convenience fee is based on the amount of the transaction.

Answer:

Tax Bills are mailed the later part of August each year and are due and payable on September 1st; however you have until January 5 to pay with no penalties or interest.
You can begin making monthly payments or pay in full as soon as you receive the bill.
This is an option many taxpayers use in order to budget for the taxes. Interest will begin on January 6 at the rate of 2% for the first month delinquent and ¾% each month thereafter until paid in full. Delinquent taxes are subject to immediate legal remedies such as Garnishment of Wages, Attachment of Bank Accounts, Rents, Attaching State Refunds, Foreclosure, or Seizure and Sale of personal property.

Answer:

The owner of personal property as of January 1st of the current tax year is responsible for taxes for the entire year.
Real estate taxes are not pro rated but are usually handled between the buyer and seller at the time of closing. You should refer to you closing documents to see if provisions for the property taxes were made at that time. The tax bill is sent to the owner of record when the bills are processed. If there is a change in ownership a bill is also sent to the new owner. Our office makes every effort to send the new owner the tax bill because the taxes follow the land and if taxes are unpaid a lien is placed on the property and various forms of legal action can be taken against the current owner.

**If you do not receive your tax bill, please contact the Pender County Tax Collections office during regular office hours to request a duplicate.

Yes, As long as there is no legal action already on the account. Contact us before the tax becomes delinquent, as this allows more time to pay. After the taxes become delinquent the time shortens considerably for payment schedules.

We have many taxpayers each year who start making monthly payments before they receive their tax bill. If you choose to do this, please be sure to write your parcel number or account number on your check along with the words” PREPAYMENT” When you receive your tax bill you can continue making the monthly payments until the bill is paid in full. This is a good way to budget and make sure your taxes are paid before they become past due.

You can mail those payments to:
Pender County Tax Collections Office

Answer:

As the holiday season approaches most people realize that real estate and personal property taxes are due on or before January 5. What comes with this is a large number of taxpayers that come in during the holiday season to pay their tax bills. There are Long Lines and a Long Wait Time during this period. We would like to make you aware of some small things you can do to avoid a long wait time for you or others.

  • Have a copy of your bill for all properties you are paying. Do not assume that we know how all of your property is listed, as we do not. We do the best we can however misspellings, a variance in the name, or listed in a spouse, child, parent, etc. You know what real estate and personal property you have, be sure to have those bills with you.
  • Be prepared to pay in cash or money order if you are paying for a blocked vehicle tax bill.
  • We have a payment drop box. This is located right outside the building doors. This can only be used if you are paying by check or money order and you have your bills enclosed. During the busy times we check this periodically during the day and the payments are keyed in on the same day, if received before 5:00pm. We don’t recommend that this be used after hours.
  • Come early. We open at 8:00 am. The lines are usually long starting around the middle of December through January 5.
  • If you have questions about your bill or wish to discuss payment options please come as soon as possible. After January 5 our ability to work out payment arrangements are severely limited. There is more time if you start paying as soon as the bill is mailed to you in August.
  • Use the Official Payments phone number (1-800-272-9829) and use the jurisdiction code (4358) or website  (pendercountync.gov), or mail in the payments.
 

Answer:

There are many possibilities for this. We did not receive your payment from the Post Office, or your payment crossed in the mail with the delinquent notice. Call to verify the status of your account.
