Why is the state's collection of vehicle property taxes changing?
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 the North Carolina new Tag and Tax System.
