Partial Payments and Payment Plans
You may elect to pay your bill in installments. Payments may be made in any amount and at any interval as long as the taxes are paid in full before the bill becomes delinquent. No approval is required from this office for these partial payments. An adjusted bill will be mailed to you after each payment.
If you are not certain you will be able to pay your entire balance in full before the bill becomes delinquent, contact our office immediately upon receiving your notice and our staff will work with you to create a short term payment plan. You will be asked to provide basic contact information along with your employer and banking information. If you delay in establishing a payment plan, the options available to you may be limited.
By keeping your payment plan current, your account will not be subject to enforced debt collection; however, please note that payment plans do not prevent real estate from being advertised in your name in the local newspaper should any portion of the bill be delinquent at the time the advertisement is made.
Prepayment of Taxes
Before the confirmation of tax rates for an upcoming year, our office will accept advance payments for real estate, business, and personal property using estimated rates. The tax rates are normally established by Wake County and its municipalities in June, and annual tax bills are mailed in July. These annual bills will reflect any prepayments made during the year.
