In North Carolina, property taxes are locally-assessed and collected by counties. Taxes rates are based on 100% of a property’s assessed value and are applied per $100 of assessed value. Real property taxes can include a combination of county, municipal, fire and special district tax rates. Properties falling within the City of Raleigh’s corporate limits are taxed at a base rate that includes the county and municipal rate. Based on where the subject property falls, a special district rate (Hillsborough St Municipal District,  Raleigh Municipal District) may also apply.
