NC Combined Vehicle Registration and Property Tax Notices

The North Carolina General Assembly passed a law (Tag & Tax System) to create a combined motor vehicle registration renewal and property tax collection system.  Beginning September, 2013, your annual vehicle inspection, registration renewal and property tax are all due the same month each year.  About 60 days before your vehicle registration expires, NCDMV will mail you a renewal notice to the mailing address they have on record.  The notice includes both your vehicle’s registration fees and taxes due. 

How to Pay the Combined Notice

Payment for the combined notice cannot be made at the county tax office.  You will pay both the registration fee and property taxes to the NC DMV using one of the payment options listed below:
