About North Carolina's New Tag & Tax System
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). North Carolina's new Tag & Tax System has been designed as a convenient way to pay annual vehicle tag renewals and vehicle property taxes. If your address is current with the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles, you will receive a Tag & Tax Notice listing both vehicle registration fees and taxes due. Just as in the past. vehicle owners will receive the notice about 60 days prior to their vehicle's registration expiration.
