Will residents of the once-annexed Monkey Junction area get a tax bill from the city?

D.C. Lewis

Q. With the city having annexed Monkey Junction for a period of time. Does that mean citizens like myself will be getting a tax bill from the city?

A. Apparently this has yet to be decided.

Legislation passed by the General Assembly effectively nullified the attempted annexation of the Monkey Junction area by the city of Wilmington.

A representative of the New Hanover County Tax Office stated that “typically taxes are all inclusive and incorporated so that they are split between the city and county. We aren’t sure how this is going to apply to the Monkey Junction area.”

UPDATE: After a request from the city of Wilmington, state Sen. Thom Goolsby introduced a bill that would keep the city from sending tax bills to the annexed and then un-annexed residents around Monkey Junction. On Feb. 27, it breezed through a Senate committee.


How much has the city made on traffic tickets around Monkey Junction?

Has Monkey Junction ever had a Kmart?
