FAYETTEVILLE –The Cumberland County Tax Administration Office reminds citizens that property taxes for real estate and personal property listed in January 2020 will be delinquent if not paid by Jan. 5, 2021. Interest and enforced collections such as bank levy, wage/rent garnishments, and/or foreclosure, will begin on Jan. 6, 2021. Interest and collection fees will be added to the tax amount due.
Tax bills may be paid online, by mail, phone or in person at the Judge E. Maurice Braswell Cumberland County Courthouse, 117 Dick St. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and current protocol, anyone entering the Courthouse is required to wear a mask or face covering and to receive a temperature check. Taxpayers are encouraged to pay their bills online, by mail or phone.
County Government offices and the Courthouse will be closed Dec. 24-28 for the Christmas holiday. Offices will again be closed on Friday, Jan. 1, for New Year’s Day. Tax Administration reminds citizens of these closings and to plan appropriately. The last week of the year is extremely busy for the office with taxpayers seeking receipts by Dec. 31 for 2020 income tax filing purposes.
