The School of Government has recently partnered with UNC Press for the sales and distribution of our publications. When you click to purchase this book you will be taken to an external shopping cart managed by Longleaf Services – a subsidiary. First time buyers may need to create a new account.

This book addresses the practical and legal issues involved in the administration and collection of property taxes within the state. Presented in a question-and-answer format, it covers such important matters as deferred taxes, tax liens, levy and sale, discovery and immaterial regularities, attachment and garnishment, refunds and releases, set-off debt collection, foreclosures, and bankruptcy. A discussion of the collection of other taxes and fees also is presented, as is a calendar of dates and tax deadlines. The book reflects all major legislative changes to the Machinery Act and related statutes through June 2011.

Several chapters in the book were previously published in the School of Government 's Property Tax Bulletin series. While those bulletins will remain available free of charge on the School of Government's website, their content has been updated and expanded for publication in the book.

This book updates and replaces previous editions of Property Tax Collection in North Carolina. The most recent edition published in 1998 and supplemented in 2000 was written by William A. Campbell. Professor Campbell's enduring scholarship served as both a foundation and an inspiration for this new title.
