County Launches New Way to Pay Tax Bills During COVID-19

GASTONIA, N.C. – This week, the Gaston County tax department began offering residents a new and hassle-free way to pay their tax bills. During the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this offers an option that does not require leaving your vehicle to make your payment.

The county is leasing an old bank branch, located at 405 N. Chester St., in Gastonia, and set up services to do drive-through tax bill payments for residents who wish to pay in person by cash or check. This eliminates the need for face-to-face contact, making this payment method a safer and contact-less option for citizens and county employees alike.

It will operate Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Non-cash payments may also be made by utilizing drop boxes at the tax office, located at the Gaston County Administration Office, 128 W. Main Ave., in Gastonia. The drop boxes are located on each side of the rear entrance doors of the building.

Residents can also mail their payments to the Gaston County Tax Department, P.O. Box 1578, Gastonia, NC, 28053. Additionally, online credit card payments are accepted at or can be made over the phone by calling 1-855-976-3866.
