Do you owe county taxes?

READ MORE: Coming up at 6 p.m.: Do you owe county taxes?

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- By law, counties in North Carolina must advertise a list of delinquent taxes. In New Hanover County that has usually meant buying space in the StarNews, the area's largest newspaper. This year, though, the county instead bought space in the Lumina News and the Wilmington Journal.

Tonight on WWAY NewsChannel 3, we find out why the county went with newspapers with much smaller circulations. We'll also find out what leaders think about a seemingly antiquated law that requires them to spend money, when they could likely have a greater reach by posting the information on the county's own website.

By the way, they don't give any of that advertising money to broadcasters. But we'll do you a public service and let you check out the list of delinquent taxes right here on our site to see if you owe the county money.
