Regrettably, Mecklenburg was notified mid-November that our online property tax listing software vendor has temporarily suspended their online listing product, TaxScribe. As a result, Mecklenburg County will not be able to offer the service of online filing (and any related online extension requests) for the 2016 tax year.
Please know that any business information entered into the online property tax listing system (TaxScribe) in the prior year is available for taxpayers to review and collect. This information can assist you in filing for your current year in the traditional manner. Please note that extension requests must be filed in our office by February 1st, 2016 with the extended filing deadline of April 15th, 2016. (The USPS Postmark is used to determine the date received) For more detail, please see the announcement and Frequently Asked Questions from Taxscribe below:
Mecklenburg County is committed to have this valuable service in place for our taxpayers and their representatives for tax year 2017. Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Taxscribe customer,
At TMA our primary commitment to you is our promise to deliver quality. We call it Quality By Design, and it's the cornerstone of our success. It has always been our motto and definitive for all our products and services.
Over the past five years we have worked diligently to meet the expectations of quality in every aspect of Taxscribe. Many of you have provided valuable information on what they wanted and how we could best define success. We made tremendous effort to meet these goals.
However, recently we recognized that some of the obstacles could not be overcome by the approaching tax season. Therefore Taxscribe will be temporarily disabled until further notice. We have made the internal decision to limit the functionality to only store and retrieve historical data in 2016, and not allow any new listings or extension requests.
We hope you will see the value in the decision to uphold our standard of quality.
