How Do I Figure Out What These Wake County NC Property Tax Numbers Mean?
It's not as confusing as it looks. The tax rates are based on the assessed value of the home, not the asking price.
Divide the assessed value by 100.
Multiply the result by the combined rate on the right side of the table.
The result will be your yearly property tax bill, as of 2011.
Where Should I Live to Get the Lowest Property Tax Rate?
Your tax bill can be lower if your home or property is not actually within a municipality, or town. If this is the case, you'll pay just the County rate, plus most likely a fire district tax and/or the special district tax.
