2011 Johnston County Property Taxes | Johnston County NC Property Tax Guide


How much are Johnston County, NC new home property taxes? That's a very common question.

Johnston County borders Wake County on the southeastern side. 

Johnston County is home to Benson, Clayton, Four Oaks, Kenly, Micro, Pine Level, Princeton, Selma, Smithfield, and Wilson's Mills. 

For folks commuting to downtown Raleigh or RTP, popular destinations include Clayton, Archer's Lodge, and the southern outskirts of Wendell, as well as Smithfield slightly farther out (which is also home to the Raleigh area's largest outlet mall - Carolina Premium Outlets at Smithfield). 

Clayton is about 17 miles away from the center of downtown Raleigh.



When were Johnston County NC property values last adjusted (assessed)?

Johnston County revalues all real estate at least every eight years, per NC requirements. 

This procedure allows the Tax Department to adjust the appraised value of real estate to reflect the property's true value in light of changing real estate market conditions. 

Land values within Raleigh have risen, and in general, less land is available for homes.  In Johnston County, homebuyers can generally find more home or land for their money than within Wake County.

Here are the 2011 rates, by town and fire district. 

To get the total property tax rate for a town, simply add the county property tax rate to the town property tax rate

For example, Clayton has a town rate of 0.525, and the Johnston County property tax rate is 0.78. 

Add the two together - the total tax rate for Clayton, NC is 1.3050.



How Do I Convert Clayton NC Property Tax Rates to the Amount I'll Write a Check For?

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.

What If The Johnston County Home I'm Considering Isn't Inside City Limits?

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 a fire district or other rate. 

If there's a particular address you're considering, you can see the exact assessed value of the home and/or property - just enter the address here.

Johnston County Property Tax Assessment Look Up

It is possible that there are fire district rates in addition to town rates, so it does help to look up a particular address.  But in general, the tax rate tables above work well to estimate taxes. 

How Do I Know If I'm In Johnston County?

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.  Ask your agent to verify the actual address and county before you sign a contract.

Clayton - a Clayton address could be in Wake County or Johnston County.

Wendell - a Wendell address could be in Wake County or Johnston County.


Property taxes are based on assessed value, not the price the home is sold for.  The assessed value you see may be either higher or lower than the asking value of the property - it really depends on how long ago the assessment was made, and what improvements have come to the area since the assessment (or what improvements are planned for the area).   If there is a discrepancy, don't be afraid to ask your real estate agent to pull comps for you!
