Debit/Credit Card or Electronic Check by Internet

 To pay online with a credit card or electronic check, access the Tax Office online payment page.
 The county has contracted with ACI Payments to process credit card and electronic check payments because the county is not allowed to absorb credit card or e-check processing fees. Official Payments charges a "convenience fee" for the service of processing the charge. Payment information will be reflected on the Internet within two business days.

Credit Card by Telephone

To pay with a credit card by phone, call ACI Payments directly at 800-272-9829. The jurisdiction code for Onslow County is 4333. For phone payments, you will need information on your bill including tax year, account number, bill number, and bill amount.

Returned Checks

Returned checks or electronic funds transfer which are not paid due to insufficient funds or nonexistence of an account are subject to a penalty of $25 or 10% of the amount, whichever is greater. (NCGS 105-357)
