The long journey toward a tax system that combines motor vehicle registration renewals with property tax payments is close to reaching its destination, with an effective implementation date of July 1, 2013. The bulk of local preparations will occur during the 2012-13 fiscal year, and major county budget impacts will take place over the 2012-13 and 2013-14 fiscal years. Following full implementation, counties should see motor vehicle tax collection rates jump from roughly 88 percent to more than 99 percent for vehicles with an active registration. The NCACC hosted a workshop at its 2012 Annual Conference that revealed the impacts of this one-stop, one-payment system on county staffing and revenues.
