Why did I get this notice?

The taxpayer received this notice because the taxpayer requested an Installment Payment Agreement. The taxpayer's Installment Payment Agreement request met the Department's requirements and has been accepted.

What should I do?

The taxpayer is not required to respond to this notice. However, the taxpayer must begin making payments by the first installment date on the taxpayer's notice. For faster processing, pay online. If the taxpayer can’t pay online, the taxpayer will receive a reminder notice with a detachable payment coupon before each scheduled payment.

Keep in mind that even once the taxpayer begins making payments, interest continues to accrue on any unpaid tax liability.

What are the requirements?

Review our Installment Payment Agreement page for a full list of requirements. While the taxpayer met the requirements to request an agreement, the taxpayer must also continue to meet certain requirements during the entire term of the taxpayer's agreement. These include:

  • Filing and paying all returns in full
  • Filing and paying estimated income taxes
  • Providing additional information, as needed

What if I can’t make a payment?

If the taxpayer cannot make a scheduled payment, or if a payment is returned to the Department from the taxpayer's bank or financial institution, the taxpayer's agreement will be in default.

The taxpayer can avoid being in default by paying online within 10 days. The taxpayer must make the scheduled payment plus a returned check penalty (10% of the payment amount.)

If the taxpayer's agreement goes into default, the Department may begin forced collection actions immediately. Examples of forced collection actions could include:

  • Deducting 10% of the taxpayer's wages
  • Freezing funds in the taxpayer's bank account
  • Seizing personal or business assets

Why did I get a Notice of Collection?

The NC General Statutes require the Department to send a Notice of Collection for all past due taxes.

Please disregard the notice if it is for past due taxes the taxpayer is paying as part of this agreement.
