OK - But What Will I Actually Pay in Lee County Property Taxes?

What do all those little numbers mean?  It's actually not as hard as it looks.

  1. Take the assessed value of the property.
  2. Divide by 100.
  3. Multiply by the tax rate.

This will give you the yearly tax amount, per 2009/2010 rates.

And just to give you an idea, here's a table of sample yearly tax payments for different sample assessed home values.

As you can see, a City of Sanford location will be the most expensive property tax location in Lee County.  Best bargains are in the variety of fire districts outside of city limits, but property tax rates are very similar amongst the fire districts - thus it won't cost much more to live in West Sanford versus Carolina Trace. 

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.

How Do I Find Out the Assessed Value of My Lee County or Sanford NC Home?

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

Lee County properties were last assessed in 2007.  North Carolina law requires each county to conduct a revaluation at least once every eight years, but some counties assess more often.  Lee County is using a six year plan, which means that the next revaluation will occur in 2013

What if the Assessed Value of my Lee County or Sanford NC new home is Different From the Sales Price?

If there is a discrepancy between the assessed value and the asking price of the home or lot, don't be afraid to ask your real estate agent to pull comps for you.  Assessed values are not always aligned well with market values, as assessments are often made several years apart.

Mickey - you CAN fight your assessed value, just takes some forms and documentation.  However, there isn't much we can do about the overall rates.  Then again, the property tax rates in most areas of the Triangle are pretty competitive, particularly for those living outside city limits.
