OK - But What Will I Actually Pay in Durham 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 2011/2012 rates.

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

How Do I Find Out the Assessed Value of My Durham County Home?

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

What if the Assessed Value 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. 

All North Carolina counties are required to conduct a revaluation at least once every eight years. Durham County was reassessed on January 1, 2008, and the new assessed values went into affect in Summer 2008.
