How Do I Figure Out What These Wake County 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. 


What County Will My New Home Be In?

When looking at properties, don't take the city address for granted - you could be in a different county, with different tax rates, depending on where exactly the property is located. For example, a Wake Forest home may lie in either Wake or Franklin County.


Check the Address of Your New Home

If there's a particular home that you're considering, you can go directly to the Franklin County Tax Records site, type in the address, and see the assessed value of the property.  

The reassessments have just been completed, though, and Franklin County is not noted for 100% accuracy in assessing the values of property, so what you see may be either higher or lower than the asking value of the property.  

If there is a discrepancy, don't be afraid to ask your real estate agent to pull comps for you!
