New Hanover County property taxes are due every year on September 1, but payment can be made until January 5 without penalty. Interest accrues after that. Property owners receive two delinquent notices by mail. The names of property owners who failed to pay their tax bill make the list, which is then published by the tax collector. Publishing the list every year is required by North Carolina general statutes. Property tax records can be searched and tax bills paid online at www.tax.nhcgov.com.
