Prior to bills being mailed in July you can make prepayments but you must specify they are prepayments or the amount will be refunded back to you. After bills are mailed in July you can make payments at any time. Tax bills are due September 1st and become delinquent after January 5th. Remember, Rowan County does offer discounts for payments in the month of July and August.
You should forward the property tax bill to the new owner unless you are going to pay it. Agreements that are made between buyers, sellers, and attorneys are not our concern. However, since property taxes are a lien on real estate, it is in the buyer’s best interest to make sure all property taxes are settled before the property is purchased at closing (See Back of Bill).
Every year once bills become delinquent they will be advertised in the Salisbury Post. Each receipt will be charged a $5.00 fee for advertisement.
Receipts will not be sent for mail payments. for proof of payment and income tax purposes retain the top portion of the bill for your records.
