Keep Your Name Out of the Paper - Pay Your Taxes by March 10
Be sure to pay your taxes by March 10 to avoid having your name published in the paper.
The Advertisement of Buncombe County Tax Liens will be listed in the Weaverville Tribune, the Leicester Leader and the Asheville Tribune beginning Thursday, March 18 through Wednesday, March 24, 2010.
Have You Waited Until the Last Minute to Pay Your Taxes? Here Are the Ways to Pay:
Drive-up payment box located at:
Buncombe County Health Center, 35 Woodfin Street.
The payment box is located on the driver’s side of the driveway as you exit the Health Center.
• Credit Card – by phone or the web. (There is a convenience fee for using a credit card – please see the back of your bill.)
• Electronic Check (on the web at buncombetax.org)
If taxes are not paid on time and the taxpayer has not set up a payment plan with the Tax Office, forced tax collection measures may take place at anytime once the bill is past due. These measures can include attachment of the taxpayer’s bank account or wage garnishment. Additional fees are included for each of these measures. In addition, banks also charge additional fees for processing bank attachments.
The Tax Office encourages taxpayers to contact the Tax Office if their taxes are delinquent:
by phone at (828) 250-4910 or in person in the Tax Office located on the third floor of Buncombe County Courthouse Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
There are several programs that can help citizens with tax payment including:
• Preauthorized debit program – payments deducted from a checking or savings account each month
• Prepay taxes – some taxpayers begin as early as January each year and pay monthly payments on their next year’s tax bill
