Union County NC Property Taxes--Tax Bills Arrive in August

It’s only August but your 2012 Union County property tax bill will arrive soon in your mailbox. The property tax process begins in June every year when Union County and its municipalities adopt their budgets for the coming year. The tax rates, based on the adopted budgets, are then set for the upcoming tax year in each jurisdiction.

When will I get my property tax bill and when are the taxes due?

The Union County Tax Office will mail the 2012 property tax bills in August but they are not due until January 7, 2013. All property owners whose payments are postmarked after January 7th will be charged an interest penalty of 2% for January and 3/4% every month thereafter until the bill is paid.

I live in a Union County town. Will I get two tax bills?

Most of Union County’s towns send separate bills to their residents. Municipal tax bills for five of Union County’s towns are included with the county property tax bill. Thus, residents of Wingate, Wesley Chapel, Fairview, Mineral Springs and Hemby Bridge only receive one bill.

My mortgage company escrows for property taxes. Will I get a tax bill?

If your property taxes are part of the escrow for your monthly mortgage payment, the county and towns will send the property tax bills to the mortgage company. If you sold your home earlier this year and receive a tax bill for that property, you should forward it to the new owner. Your buyer already received credit for your share of the 2012 property taxes at closing.

How can I pay my 2012 property tax bill?

You can pay your bill by mail, in person at the Tax Collector’s office, by drop box, by phone and by the internet.
