What if I can’t make a payment?

If a taxpayer cannot make a scheduled payment, or a payment is returned to us from their bank or financial institution, the agreement will be in default.

  • To avoid default, pay online within 10 days.
  • If the payment was returned from the bank, the amount must equal the scheduled payment plus a returned check penalty (10% of the scheduled payment amount.)

If the 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 paid before deductions
  • Freezing funds in the taxpayer's bank account
  • Seizing personal or business assets

For more information, review the installment payment agreement page's section on requirements.

Why did I get a Notice of Collection?

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

Please disregard the notice if it was for past due taxes being paid as part of this agreement.
