Vehicle Assessing

Tag & Tax Together Program

Beginning in 2013, North Carolina implemented a new program to combine vehicle registration renewal and property tax collection into one system under the NC Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  The Tag & Tax Together program provides for payment of license tag renewal and vehicle tax at the same time.

Tag and Tax Together LogoThe Assessor's Office and the Office of the Tax Collector have implemented the new system within Mecklenburg County. For more information click on the Tag & Tax together logo at right.


Vehicle AssessingOut with the old…

The previous system was enacted into law (NCGS 105-330) in 1993. The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles provided lists of vehicles whose license tags had been issued or renewed each month to the Counties. The Assessor’s Office in each County valued the vehicles and assessed property taxes based on the values. Owners received their bills approximately three months after the tags were renewed or issued.

 

Assessment of Vehicles 

If adjustments to value for specific circumstances such as high mileage or vehicle condition are needed, these continue to be processed by the Assessor’s Office after billing.   The Office of the Tax Collector is responsible for collecting delinquent vehicle taxes.  See their Tax Collections - Question and Answer page for additional information on tax collection.

 

Vehicle Tax Bills
Information on registered motor vehicles is secured by Federal law to preserve the privacy and welfare of citizens. While other property information is accessible to the public, vehicle data is restricted to those with an official need-to-know. Therefore, owners who are seeking assistance on valuations and tax bills for their vehicles must have their bills or registration to receive help specific to their situations.
