Project Collect Tax is an initiative to boost compliance with the state revenue laws. The project focuses on the collection of delinquent tax debts over 90 days old.
Based on a new law recently passed by the NC General Assembly, every delinquent taxpayer will receive a special notice from NCDOR informing them of the amount of the debt and allowing the delinquent account holder 30 days to pay in full or set up a payment plan. If the debt is not paid within the allotted time, a 20% fee will be added to the total tax debt. In some cases the account may be referred to a private collection agency for further action.
In the coming months, NCDOR plans to invest in new personnel and technologies to aid citizens in becoming compliant with the state's revenue laws. Increasing compliance with these laws benefits every North Carolinian by ensuring that each citizen is treated fairly and that vital government entities have adequate resources to accomplish their missions.
