North Carolina Launches "Tag and Tax Together" Initiative

Date: July 29, 2013

Raleigh, N.C. — North Carolina’s new “Tag and Tax Together” program is officially underway and the first combined tag and tax notices are being mailed to drivers with September vehicle registration renewals.  

The new bills will reflect both vehicle property tax information from counties and other taxing jurisdictions, as well as vehicle registration and inspection information. Drivers have always paid for tags and taxes separately, but under the new “Tag & Tax Together” program only one payment will be required. Both tag renewals and tax payments must be paid in full to renew vehicle registrations.

Vehicle owners can tell if they will be among the first to receive the new bills by checking to see if they have a “9” (for the month of September) sticker on their license tag. With each month that passes, additional vehicle owners will receive the new notice when their renewal is due. By mid-2014, the program should include all North Carolina vehicle owners.
