Orange County Tax Administrator Nancy Freeman reminds Orange County property owners that it is time to pay property taxes. Tax bills were mailed in early August and were due Sept. 1, 2022.
The grace period to pay before interest is added ends on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2023. Interest in the amount of 2% will be added immediately, and 0.75% interest will be added on the first of each month thereafter until the taxes are paid. Unpaid bills are considered delinquent on after Jan. 5, 2023, and subject to collection methods.
Not receiving a property tax statement does not relieve the property owner from paying property tax and/or interest applied for late payments. Anyone who has not received a tax statement may contact the Tax office and request one at 919-245-2100.
Please bring the bill when paying in person. The Tax Office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The office is located on the second floor of the Gateway Center at 228 S. Churton Street in Hillsborough. Enter the building through the west doors facing the parking deck. Checks should be made payable to Orange County Tax Collector.
When paying by mail, include the bottom portion of the statement and retain the top portion of your statement. If a receipt is needed, please include a written request with your payment. If you do not have your coupon, please mail your payment to the Orange County Tax Office, PO Box 8181, Hillsborough, NC 27278.
All mailed payments must be USPS postmarked on or before January 5th, 2023 to be considered timely received.
