NC doesn't use "millage", its bases property taxes on a tax amount per $100 of assessed value. And BSL and Leland DO have municipal property taxes ($0.21 and $0.1515 per $100 of value respectively). Winnabow isn't an incorporated town.

It should be noted that the property taxes are not the only cost to consider.

When you are not in a municipality, you may have many of the following...

1) No garbage pickup or higher cost for garbage pickup than city/town fee
2) Septic tanks, which require maintenance or higher sewer fee's. You also may not be able to add bedrooms onto your property if you have a septic tank.
3) Little to no zoning in place. Many think this is a good thing, until the next door neighbor brings 250 garden tractors into his yard to repair.
4) Higher water costs.
5) Higher house insurance because you are served by a volunteer fire company.
6) Further drive to most commercial or work. Add up the cost of gas to get back and forth, especially if you in another county. Further from the Hospital/Parks/Entertainment. No public transportation option. Additional wear and tear on the car(s).
7) All the time it takes from you in #6.

What you just said is that North Carolina doesn't use meters to measure distances, they use feet. Well, actually, you can use both because it is simply a unit of measure. The answer in the end is exactly the same as long as you keep your units consistent. I can't tell if you're trolling or if you're genuinely confused.

The millage rate is the amount per $1,000 used to calculate taxes on property. Millage rates are most often found in personal property taxes, where the expressed millage rate is multiplied by the total taxable value of the property to arrive at the property taxes due.

Millage per thousand is exactly the same as percentage per $100.

Consult the PDF I linked to to calculate your assessment.

LOL, you don't understand the difference between 100 and 1,000 and I'm the one who's confused? Thanks for the laugh!

By the way, speaking of confused, are you still claiming that BSL and Leland don't levy a property tax?

Consult the spreadsheet.

LELAND
4.850 mils COUNTY-WIDE
1.515 mils CITY OR TOWN
6.365 mils TOTAL OF ALL JURISDICTIONS

Example: [($300,000 assessed home value)/1000] * 6.365 = $1,909.50 total annual property taxes for a Leland resident.

-OR-

0.4850% COUNTY-WIDE
0.1515% CITY OR TOWN
0.6365% TOTAL OF ALL JURISDICTIONS

Example: [($300,000 assessed home value) * 0.006365] = $1,909.50 total annual property taxes for a Leland resident.
