Local Tax Rates and Tax Offices in Raleigh-Durham

Property Tax Rates

By

Raleigh-Durham residents typically have to pay a variety of taxes to their local governments every year, and sometimes, it can be difficult to figure out what is owed and why.

It can also be frustrating that many counties and municipalities seem to bury their tax rate information deep in cyberspace. I've tried to help make your search for North Carolina local tax information easier by bringing that information to the surface so that it will be easier for individuals to find out exactly what tax rates their local governments are charging.

Here's a list of county tax offices and links to lists of local tax rates in the Triangle. If I've missed any, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.

If you'd like to compare your county's 2009 tax rates to those of other counties in North Carolina, look at this tax rate comparison chart created by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners.
