IMPORTANT TAX DEADLINE CHANGES FOR SOME LOCAL BUSINESSES
Charlotte, NC – The monthly payment date for certain businesses taxes in Mecklenburg County have been changed effective immediately. The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners has passed an ordinance that changes the monthly tax return/payment deadline from the fifteenth of every month to the twentieth of every month for the following local taxes:
• Room Occupancy
• Prepared Food and Beverage
• Vehicle Rental Taxes
• U-Drive-It Tax
The change was necessary in order to align local payment dates with those established by the State of North Carolina. The County and the State having consistent due dates for similar taxes is administratively beneficial to businesses who collect and remit these taxes.
More information will be sent out with the next mailing of tax returns to businesses in the Tax Collector’s current database that collect the listed taxes. Additional information is available at tax.charmeck.org or by contacting the Business Tax Collection section of the Office of the Tax Collector at
