Sample Property Tax Report for a Wake County, NC property

Property tax in North Carolina is a locally assessed tax, collected by the counties. The State Department of Revenue is responsible for listing, appraising and assessing all real estate estate within the counties. State legislation requires each county to reappraise real property, land, buildings and other improvements, at least once every eight years. However, it also allows them to revalue more frequently at their discretion.

Market Value

The Wake County Revenue Department establishes the appraised value, also known as market value, for all taxable property within the county. Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Land value $42,000
Building value + $73,339
Market value = $115,339
Assessed Value

Property taxes are based on the assessed value of the property, which are calculated based on market values and a predetermined ratio. North Carolina General Statutes require that real estate be assessed at 100% of its market value as of January 1 of each reappraisal year.

Assessed value = $115,339
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Wake County provides taxpayers with several types of exemptions, including special historical exemptions, deferred tax programs and tax relief programs which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

We have no information about whether any exemptions currently apply to this property, therefore the taxable value is equal to the assessed value.

Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding tax rates.
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions and recycling fee.
Base tax represents the amount of what an owner not benefiting from tax deductions would pay.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs.

Tax description Taxable value Tax rate Tax amount
Wake County $115,339 * 0.5780% = $666.66
Fuquay Varina $115,339 * 0.3850% = $444.06

Recycling fee + $20.00
Current tax = $1,130.71

Tax description Assessed value Total rate Recycling fee Tax amount
Base tax $115,339 * 0.9630% + $20 = $1,130.71
