Here is how to calculate the property tax in the city of New Bern?

Example 1. Let's use a home with a tax valuation of $200,000. First,divide $200,000 by 100 which gives you 2000. Now add the County tax rate of .47 to the New Bern tax rate of .41 and you get .88. Since the property is in the city of New Bern you do not pay any fire tax. Multiply the total tax rate, .88, by the tax value divided by 100, 2000, and you get $1760. So on a $200,000 property in the city of New Bern you would pay $1760 in total property tax.

Here is how to calculate the property tax in the city of Trent Woods?

Example 2. A home in Trent Woods valued at $200,000. First,divide $200,000 by 100 which gives you 2000. Now add the County tax rate of .47, the Trent Woods tax rate of .17 and the fire tax of .0314 you get .6714. Multiply the total tax rate, .6714, by the tax value divided by 100, 2000, and you get $. So on a $200,000 property in the city of New Bern you would pay $1342.8 in total property tax.

Here is how to calculate the property tax not in an incorporated city?

Example 3. Let's take a home valued at $200,000 not located within an incorporated city. The property is located in Township 7. $200,000/100=2000. The County tax rate is.47, no city tax is applicable, and the fire tax rate for Township 7 is.0177. Add the two together and get .4877. Multiplying 2000 by .4877 and get the total tax of $975.40.

Vehicle Property Tax

North Carolina requires counties to assess the values of motor vehicles. Vehicle taxes are paid at the same time that they are registered each year. North Carolina residents who have not yet registered their vehicles or who have not renewed their vehicle registrations are still required to list their vehicles with their county of residence by January 31 of each year. Once a vehicle is registered, the DMV furnishes a record of the make and model of the registered vehicle, and the vehicle owner's local county tax assesor determines the tax.

The Tag & Tax Together program combines your North Carolina vehicle's registration fees and property taxes into one renewal notice. NC DMV will send you one invoice; you pay in one transaction.

North Carolina Homestead Act

PROPERTY TAX RELIEF FOR ELDERLY AND PERMANENTLY DISABLED PERSONS

North Carolina excludes from property taxes the greater of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) or fifty percent (50%) of the appraised value of a permanent residence owned and occupied by a qualifying owner. A qualifying owner is an owner who meets all of the following requirements as of January 1 preceding the taxable year for which the benefit is claimed:

(1) Is at least 65 years of age or totally and permanently disabled.
(2) Has an income for the preceding calendar year of not more than $25,000.
(3) Is a North Carolina resident.

Income is defined as all moneys received from every source other than gifts or inheritances received from a spouse, lineal ancestor, or lineal descendant. For married applicants residing with their spouses, the income of both spouses must be included, whether or not the property is in both names.

Income Example:

If a claimant's income was $4,000.00 and this person had $6,000.00 in Social Security benefits which were not taxable, his income for 2007 would be $10,000.00. Assuming this was all of the claimant's income for 2007 and he was at least 65 years of age or totally and permanently disabled, he would qualify for the Homestead Exclusion for tax year 2008.

State Income Tax

Good news if you are retired military or retired Federal government. Military pensions are not taxable in NC under the Bailey-Patton Act.

For the rest of us you will pay a state income tax. For more information on N.C. State income tax click the link below.
