Beginning in January of 2012 businesses in Mecklenburg County will have the opportunity to file their property tax listings with the Assessor’s Office online. E-filing helps Mecklenburg County to become more efficient while saving taxpayers time and expense in the filing process.
The new online application provides the following features:
The listing period for business personal property is January 1-31. If an extension for electronic filing is made by January 31st (using TaxScribe), the filing period is extended to May 15th.
All active businesses who have listed with Mecklenburg County Assessor’s Office in 2011 have been loaded into the TaxScribe system. The search function can be used to locate a specific business - a new account should NOT be created unless a previously unreported business is being entered.
For issues related to User ID's, password's, or other technical issues with the TaxScribe system, users may access the help function on the TaxScribe website. For other assessment related questions, the Business Personal Property website contains information and FAQ’s. Other questions can be answered by calling 311, or submitted through email to the Assessment Operations Division at BPPEmail@MecklenburgCountyNC.gov.

North Carolina General Statute 105-311 was amended in 2011 to requiring all agents to be authorized by a principal officer of the taxpayer to submit tax abstracts electronically using an electronic signature method. It requires the taxpayer to complete an AV-59 form provided by the Local Government Division, Property Tax Section. Instructions can be found on the TAXScribe site for this authorization.
