Delinquent Taxpayers In The Newspaper

About 30,000 delinquent taxpayers had their names published in the newspaper on Sunday.

April 11, 2007

About 30,000 Mecklenburg County property owners have not yet paid their 2006 real and personal property tax bills. Those owners will have their names and the amount they owe published in The Charlotte Observer on Sunday, April 15. Huntersville and Cornelius delinquencies will be published in the Huntersville Herald.

Each tax bill published will be charged an additional fee for the cost of the advertisement. That fee is in addition to interest charged for late payment. Any 2006 tax bill paid after January 5, 2007 is charged 2 percent interest for the month of January and 0.75 percent interest for each month thereafter until the bill is paid.

REFUND AT RISK: Delinquent taxpayers run the risk of having their North Carolina state income tax refund seized to pay off their County property taxes. Mecklenburg County participates in the N.C. Setoff Debt Program. This program authorizes the Tax Collector to submit the delinquent tax amounts of taxpayers to the State and the State distributes income tax refund money to the County to satisfy the tax debt.
