Understanding Charlotte, North Carolina area taxes

Understanding Charlotte, North Carolina area taxes
Nobody likes talking about taxes, but it is important to know what your local rates are and how they will affect you. Many people move to the Charlotte area from around the country due to its lower taxes and financial opportunities that the local economy offers. Taxes on homes in the area are based on a local tax assessment. In most cases tax value is not a reflection of market value.
Tax Formula: Property Tax Value /100 x Full Rate = Annual Tax Paid
Example: Town of Cornelius and Mecklenburg County Tax example of a home with a Tax Value of $425,000
Property Value 425,000 /100 = 4,250 County Tax .8389 + Town Tax .222 = 1.0609 | 425,000/100 = 4,250 x 1.0609 = $4,508.83 Annual Taxes Due
