Durham County Taxes 2017 | Property Tax for Durham County, NC New Homes
Moving to Durham County, North Carolina? You will want to know what the yearly property taxes might be for your new home.
What are 2017 Property Taxes in Durham County*?
Here are the 2017 property tax rates, by town within Durham County:
Each county in North Carolina has a "county wide" property tax rate. Each city, town, fire, or other special district may have an additional property tax rate. To get the total property tax rate for a town, simply add the county tax to the district or city tax - like the "Combined 2017 Rate" in the table above. For example:
- Durham County has a tax rate of 0.7404
- The total tax rate for the city of Durham inside Durham County is 1.3011
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 Durham County, such as Chapel Hill, Durham, the City of Raleigh, Bahama, Eno, Rolesville, and New Hope.
There is no guarantee that tax rates will remain the same - check the Durham County Tax Rates 2017 website for the most up to date 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.
