So What Are Harnett County's Property Tax Rates?

The property tax rates vary by location.

Rates inside town or city limits are higher.

Every home resides in either a fire district, city or town limits, or both.







Here are the 2007-08 rates, by town and fire district.  

To get the total property tax rate, you'll first need to find out which district the home will be in.

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 rate on the right side of the table.
  • The result will be your yearly property tax bill, as of 2007.

This table gives sample property tax bills for all the towns and fire districts in Harnett CountyYour tax bill can be lower if your home or property is not actually within a municipality, or town. 

For 2007, the district tax rates vary from .78 to 1.36.  There is no guarantee that tax rates will remain the same - check the Harnett County Property Tax page for most recent information.

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, the city of Sanford is in Lee County, but there are also some references to Sanford in Harnett County. 

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

If there's a particular home that you're considering, you can go directly to the Harnett 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.  Harnett County will be reassessed in 2009, and the reevaluation process is going on now.
