CABARRUS COUNTY, N.C. (WBTV) - Cabarrus County officials are reminding residents that January also brings the grace period deadline for paying 2022 real estate and personal property tax bills.

The month of January is also the window for filing any new tax listings for personal property. This includes changes made to home or business buildings or other structures on your land, or if you own taxable personal property such as vehicles that don’t have an annual registration renewal with the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (like trailers, campers) or recreational vehicles (such as jet skis, boats, etc.).

Tax bill grace period ends on January 5, 2023

Current tax bills went out to property owners listed on tax records as of January 1, 2022. Those taxes were based on the January 2022 value of property, and property tax rates set by County and municipal officials in June.

The original due date of bills was September 1, but taxpayers are given a four-month window to pay before penalties kick in. After January 5, 2023, property owners are subject to interest charges, collections and/or tax foreclosure.

The taxpayer is responsible for contacting the collections office to request a payment plan.

Cabarrus County real estate and personal property tax can be paid:

  • Via the myCabCo website (myCabCo.cabarruscounty.us) or app with a credit or debit card
  • By mail using the envelope and coupon provided with the bill
  • In person at the Cabarrus County Tax Collections office at the Government Center, 65 Church St. S, Concord
