Payment Options

You may pay your tax by using a credit/debit card (Visa/Mastercard) or bank draft via our online payment system or contacting an agent at 1-877-252-3252.

You may also pay your tax with a personal check, money order or cashier’s check. The Department will not accept a check, money order, or cashier’s check unless it is drawn on a U.S. (domestic) bank and the funds are payable in U.S. dollars. Make your check or money order payable to N.C. Department of Revenue and mail payments to P.O. Box 25000 – Raleigh, NC 27640-0002. Include with the payment your name, social security number, the kind of tax, and the tax year the payment is for.

You may pay in person at your Collection Division Office.

If you cannot pay your taxes by the due date, you should still file your return on time. Any unpaid tax is subject to penalty and interest, which accrues daily; therefore, you should pay your balance in full as soon as possible. It is important that you pay as much as you can with the return to minimize the penalty and interest.
