Delinquent taxes will be collected through garnishment of wages, attachment of state income tax refunds and bank accounts, seizure and sale of personal property (including vehicles, boats, and business equipment), or foreclosure on real estate.
Each year delinquent real estate taxes are advertised in a local newspaper. Unpaid taxes will be advertised in accordance with N.C.G.S. 105-369. Additional costs will be added to delinquent accounts if advertised.
