Payment Options

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

Taxpayers may also pay their 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 the check or money order payable to N.C. 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, the type of tax, and the applicable tax year/period with the payment.

Taxpayers may pay in person at their local service center.

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; therefore, pay the balance in full as soon as possible. It is important to pay as much as possible with the return to minimize the penalty and interest.
