BURGAW – As the deadline for tax payments come due in January, the Pender County Tax Office has created a Fast Pay Window as well as extended office hours.
Office hours on Tuesdays will be extended until 7 p.m. at the tax office beginning Dec. 1, through Jan. 5, 2021.
“We will remain open until 7 p.m. to better serve our residents,” said Justian Pound, Pender County Tax Administrator.
In addition to extended Tuesday hours, the tax office will offer a Fast Pay Window for taxpayers who come prepared with a check or credit card with a single-pay statement. This express window is available for anyone who wants to pay the full amount and doesn’t have questions regarding the tax bill.
“We urge residents who want to use the Fast Pay Window to skip the line and pay without delays,” said Pound. “For citizens who wish to pay in person, we want to make this easy and safe during the pandemic.”
For safety’s sake during the pandemic and upcoming colder weather, the tax office personnel urges residents to conduct tax business soon to avoid long lines.
The Pender County tax office is located at 300 E. Freemont St. in Burgaw.
