When residents receive their tax bills for 2020, if they own a motor vehicle that is registered to an address within the Town of Butner’s corporate limits, they will notice a $10 motor vehicle tax. 

As allowed by North Carolina General Statutes §20-97(b), the Town of Butner has elected to levy a $10 licensing tax on any motor vehicle resident in the Town.  The first $5.00 of the tax will be a revenue for the General Fund.  The remaining $5 must be used for maintaining, repairing, constructing, reconstructing, widening or improving public streets in the Town that do not form a part of the State highway system.
