Default Tax Comparison Between Meck, Union & York

It is obvious that Mecklenburg has the highest taxes of these three counties, but does anyone know the exact difference including all forms of taxes, i.e. county, state, property, sales, etc?

Real estate taxes are much lower in SC than in NC. There is a thread detailing a new law passed last year that made this even more so. The thread is "~50% reduction in...".

State income tax in 7% SC and I beleive it is 8% in NC.

Sales tax is SC is 6% on most items with the exception of food items where it is 3%. Each local county can add up to a 1% local options sales tax to the state percentage and most due including York county I believe. So sales tax actually is 7%. In NC I believe it is 4.5%

I hope this helps. Check out that other thread for more details information.

iT DEPENDS on what area in union your in, some of the property taxes you are just paying county tax and some u are paying county&city tax which makes it higher...my accountant said the income tax is the same as NJ she only gave me a percentage of what we will loose so it isnt a big deal depending on where your coming from..
