Northampton County, N.C. Online Tax Payment Option 
We are pleased to announce that, effective immediately, we are accepting credit cards, debit cards and electronic checks on the internet for payment of vehicle taxes, real property taxes, and other personal property taxes. 

We have chosen to use PayPal to provide this credit card and debit card payment service to the County. This company provides this service to many states and local counties. 

Whenever a credit card is used for any purchase, the merchant does not receive the full amount that is charged to the credit card. Online businesses sometimes recover this cost by adding a “handling fee” to the cost of the merchandise ordered. To pay for this service, PayPal Corp. will charge you a convenience fee. This fee will show up as a separate charge on your PayPal confirmation; Northampton County does not receive any of this fees. This fee will not show on your paid Northampton County tax receipt. You will be informed of the amount of the fee before your transaction is completed and you will have an opportunity to terminate the transaction if you do not wish to accept the charge. 

Please examine all of the information to determine if this method of payment suits your needs. The digital receipt that you print after making your payment is a confirmation of your payment, but this receipt is NOT acceptable at the DMV. If you call and request one from the tax department, you will be mailed an official tax receipt within three (3) business days. 

PLEASE NOTE: Your account may NOT show this payment for up to three (3) business days after you make your payment. Do Not submit a second payment if you receive a digital receipt and confirmation number. This transaction date will be the payment date posted to your account.
