Original Post - August 11, 2023: Town of Morehead City Property Tax Bills will be delayed in being mailed due to tax file layout changes at the Carteret County Tax Office. Our tax office is hopeful to have the tax bills mailed by August 25th at the latest. The Town of Morehead City tax office will not have amounts available until this time.
The Town of Morehead City appreciates your patience and understanding.
North Carolina General Statutes does not require that any type of property tax bill be prepared or distributed to taxpayers. However, the Town of Morehead City usually mail bills at the beginning of August.
Does the Town offer a discount for early payment? No.
When do the taxes become delinquent? If the tax remains unpaid on January 6, they are considered delinquent and 2% interest applies. Collection efforts begin on this date. Interest continues to accrue at ¾% each month until paid in full.
