4 Easy Ways to Pay Your Property Taxes and Avoid Long Lines


There are several ways to pay your taxes other than waiting in line at the Tax Department.

1) You can make an electronic payment

You can use the online bill pay found here. This is the best way to avoid long lines as you canpay from home, a local library, or anywhere else you have a secure internet connection.

2) Pay by mail

Use the convenient self-addressed envelope included in your bill, or mail your check or money order to:

P.O. Box 3140
Asheville, NC 28802

Please do not send cash via mail.

3) Use our drop box

Place your check or money order in the drop box in front of the Family Justice Center at 35 Woodfin St. in downtown Asheville – or in the wall slot next to the main entrance of the Tax Department at 94 Coxe Ave. in downtown Asheville.

4) You can pay by credit card over the phone

Call 1-877-690-3729 (enter jurisdiction code 4301 and follow the instructions)

Note – when you pay by a credit card over the phone, there is a convenience fee of $3.95 for a Visa Debit payment, or a 2.35 percent fee with a credit or non-Visa debit card payment. There is no fee associated with an electronic check.

Remember that payments must be received or postmarked by Jan. 7 (to avoid a 2 percent interest fee). While payment plans are set up by the Tax Department, they must be set up early in order to participate.
If you have misplaced your tax bill or need a receipt, they can be printed online by visiting tax.buncombecounty.org.
