Wake County Taxes 2017 | Property Tax for Wake County, NC New Homes
Moving to Wake County, North Carolina?
If you're considering a move to the greater Raleigh area, or just a relocation within the Triangle, you've probably wondered how much the yearly property taxes will be for your new home.
What are 2017 Property Taxes in Wake County*?
Here are the 2017 property tax rates, by town within Wake County:
To get the total property tax rate for a town, simply add the county tax to the town tax - like the "Combined 2016 Rate" in the table above. For example:
- Cary has a town tax rate of 0.35
- Wake County has a tax rate of 0.6005
- Add the two together - the total tax rate for Cary, NC is 0.9505
How Do I Figure Out What These Property Tax Numbers Mean?
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 2017 Rate
- The result will be your yearly property tax bill, as of 1/1/2017
This table gives sample property tax bills for all the cities and towns in Wake County, such as Apex, Cary, Fuquay Varina, Holly Springs, Raleigh, Wake Forest, and Zebulon.
There is no guarantee that tax rates will remain the same - check the Wake County Tax Rates government page for most recent information.
Where Should I Live to Get the Lowest Property Tax Rate?
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 most likely a fire district tax and/or the special district tax.
