Tax collector will list delinquent property owners in Observer

April 7. Sunday is the day of reckoning for more than 44,000 Mecklenburg County property owners who have not paid their 2021 real and personal property tax bills. Their names and the principal amount they owe will be published in The Charlotte Observer.

In the spirit of customer service [with sarcasm] bills paid after Feb. 28 may be included in the advertisement. Uh, Happy Thursday.

Visit MeckNC.gov/taxes and click on Property Tax System to determine the current amount due for any delinquent real estate or personal tax bill.

Properties identified as eligible for foreclosure can be found here.

Here’s how to pay your bill:
