The Tax Office is no longer in the Courthouse. It is located at 35 Woodfin Street (the old Health Center) across from the YMCA and First Baptist Church downtown. Free parking is available in the front of 35 Woodfin and pay parking is available in the County parking deck off College Street.
Here’s the rest of the story on taxes:
Don't forget, January 5, 2012 is the LAST day to pay your Buncombe County property taxes before the 2 percent interest is added on January 6, 2012.
On January 6, interest of 2 percent will be added to any unpaid balance on a tax bill and ¾ percent will be added each month thereafter.
Property Tax Bill Payments postmarked by the US Postal Service on or before January 5 will be accepted on time.
Payment options include:
Mail (Postmarked on or before January 5)
Drive-up payment box located at:
35 Woodfin Street, where the Tax Department is now located.
The payment box is located on the driver’s side of the driveway as you exit 35 Woodfin Street. Payments placed in our drop box on January 5 or the night of the 5th will be considered on time.
Credit Card – by phone or the web. (There is a convenience fee for using a credit card – please see the back of your bill)
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.
