Under NCGS 105-350 the Tax Collector is charged "To employ all lawful means to collect all property, dog, license, privilege, and franchise taxes with which he is charged by the governing body."
For all taxes remaining unpaid, enforced collections will begin immediately upon the account reaching delinquent status. These legal actions may include, but are not limited to, garnishment of wages, attachment of bank accounts and rents, attachment of NC State Refunds or Lottery Winnings, seizure and sale of personal property, and foreclosure and sale of real property.

Attachment and Garnishment:
Once a tax bill has become delinquent, the Tax Collector has the authority (given by NCGS 105-368) to garnish the taxpayer's wages, attach rent, bank deposits, or other funds that are being held on behalf of the taxpayer to satisfy the debt. By law, the wages or funds must be sent to the Tax Collector to satisfy the delinquency, including fees. If you are a taxpayer who has received a Notice of Attachment or Garnishment, note that we have also notified your employer, bank or renter to send your funds to the Tax Collector to satisfy your debt.
Wages Garnished:
Upon receipt of a garnishment action by this office, your employer is required to send 10% of your gross wages per pay period until the amount requested including the service fee is paid in full.
Bank Account Attached:
If your bank account is attached, your bank will immediately place a hold on any funds on deposit up to the amount needed to satisfy your debt. These funds will be remitted for payment to the Tax Collector. Note: your bank may also charge you a fee for processing the attachment.
Rent Attached:
If taxes remain unpaid on property, collection remedies allow our office to attach any rents due to you. An attachment order will be issued to the renter who is required by law to send the total rent payment each month to our office until the total amount due including service fees are paid in full. After the attachment of rents is served, the property owner may voluntarily pay the total amount due. Upon receiving your payment, the tax office will send a Release of Attachment to your renter.
Foreclosure of Real Estate:
If taxes remain unpaid on real property after January 5th, the real estate can be subject to foreclosure. Real property determined to be collected by this method, will be turned over to an outside attorney.
Seizure and Sale of Personal Property
NCGS 105-367 gives the tax collector the authority to seize and sell personal property to satisfy the tax lien on real or personal property.
Attachment of State Income Tax:
Under NCGS 105-368, once a tax bill becomes delinquent, the Tax Collector has the authority to attach your NC State Income Tax Refund or NC Lottery Winnings. All fees applicable to this action will apply.
