Hunter, TC. "Robeson’s tax collection lags in NC." St Pauls Review [St. Pauls, NC]. April 1, 2017.
Robeson County’s tax increase has slowing been getting higher, but it is below the state average. Some commissioners believe it needs to increase more. County commissioner David Edge says the pressure should be on taxpayers to pay on time. The tax collection rate is below average for the state. If the taxes were at the same collection rate as the state, the country would bring in 3 million more dollars a year. Edge is calling for a more aggressive approach to collecting taxes.
