Deadline for paying 2023 property taxes is Jan. 5


Cumberland County Tax Administration reminds citizens that property taxes for real estate and personal property listed in January 2023 will be delinquent if not paid by Jan. 5, 2024. Interest and enforced collections such as bank levy, wage/rent garnishments, and/or foreclosure, will begin on Jan. 6, 2024. Interest and collection fees will be added to the tax amount due.

County Government offices and the Courthouse will be closed Dec. 25 to 27 for the Christmas holiday. Offices will again be closed on Monday, Jan. 1, for New Year’s Day. Tax Administration reminds citizens of these closings and to make appropriate plans. The last week of the year is extremely busy for the office with taxpayers seeking receipts by Dec. 31 for 2023 income tax filing purposes.

Taxpayers may pay their tax bills in person, online, by mail or by phone. Go to cumberlandcountync.gov/tax to pay online with an electronic check, debit card or major credit card. A Service Fee of $3.80 will apply to all payments processed using a regulated Visa or Mastercard consumer debit card. All other consumer debit and credit cards will be charged a convenience fee of 2.50% of the amount paid or a minimum of $2, whichever is greater. Business cards, purchasing cards, American Express or other High Rewards cards will be charged a convenience fee of 3.25%.

Taxpayers may pay in person using cash, money orders, check, debit or credit cards at the Tax Administration office located in Room 530 on the fifth floor of the Judge E. Maurice Braswell Cumberland County Courthouse at 117 Dick St., Fayetteville. Taxpayers may also make payments (checks or money orders only) using the drop box located outside Room 530 near the customer service entrance of Tax Administration.

For added convenience, an outdoor secure drop box is located beside the mailboxes in the courthouse’s rear parking lot between the Courthouse and Law Enforcement Center. Do not place cash payments in the drop box; only checks and money orders.

If you have questions before paying the bill, please send them by email to taxweb@cumberlandcountync.gov or call 910-678-7507 prior to dropping off your payment in the drop box or paying online.
