Taxpayers may pay their tax in a variety of ways:

  • Use a credit/debit card (Visa/MasterCard).
  • Make a bank draft via our online payment system.
  • Use funds in the form of a personal check, money order or cashier’s check. Said funds must come from a US (domestic) bank and must be payable in US dollars.
    • Make the check or money order payable to NC Department of Revenue and mail payments to:

      NC Department of Revenue 
      PO Box 25000 
      Raleigh, NC 27640-0002

    • Please include the taxpayer's name, social security number, type of tax, and applicable tax year/period with the payment.
  • Pay in person at their local service center.
  • Contact an agent at 1-877-252-3252.

If a taxpayer cannot pay their taxes by the due date, they should still file the return(s) on time. Any unpaid tax is subject to penalty and interest, which accrues daily; so, pay the balance in full as soon as possible. It is important to pay as much as possible with the return to reduce the penalty and interest.
