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:
          Garnishment and Payment Processing Unit
          NC Department of Revenue
          PO Box 27431
          Raleigh, NC 27602-1168
  • Please include the taxpayer's name, social security number, the type of tax, and the applicable tax year 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 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.
