Payment of Taxes on Registered Motor Vehicles

In 2005, the North Carolina General Assembly ratified House Bill 1779 to create a combined motor vehicle registration renewal and property tax collection system. The legislation places the responsibility for motor vehicle property tax collection for the state’s 100 counties with the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The new combined registration fee and tax collection has become North Carolina’s new “Tag & Tax System.” The only time vehicle taxes are handled by Forsyth County is when a vehicle is unregistered or has a gap in registration.

If you want to renew your registration, here is a link to the NC DMV.

If you would like to see what you paid in taxes on a past renewal, this information also is available online at My DMV.

To use this site you will need:

  • NC Driver’s License or NC Identification Card Number.
  • Last 4 Digits of your Social Security Number, or I-94 (Arrival/Departure US Customs Form) or Alien Registration Number.
  • Date of Birth.

Once logged in, you will see “Correspondence” on the right middle third of the window. Under “Correspondence” you will be able to select the year for Vehicle Property Tax Fee paid. Select the year desired and all vehicles paid for in that year will display with the total taxes paid for each vehicle in that calendar year.
