Default dumb question - orange county tax?

I cannot seem to find the county rate like I did for Wake County. Def user error but might someone post it?

Another question: As far as Hillsborough subdivisions, is it Fox Hill, Red Hill, Churton Grove for the over-$400k homes? We def won't be buying in the first two subdivisions due to price, and we are looking for a community which has a neighborhood pool and hopefully other amenities as we need the convenient social option.

On the amenities, what is a 'bath house'? We've lived in San Francisco and 'bath houses' were somewhat a normal societal element, and the bath houses in Bath, England were similar, but I'm thinking that a family-oriented subdivision means something different.

Thanks!

Thanks! I looked at that chart before, but I cannot figure it out. For example, Wake County tax is .678. From that number, I can calculate what is listed for Cary, etc.

But for Orange County, I do not see a similar singular tax rate, from which the specific towns (like Hillsborough) add on.

This chart, instead of breaking out the tax rate that way (although you can determine it with some sleuthing), provides all the possible combinations. So, for example, it says that for "County + Hillsborough City" the tax rate is 0.01585 (per $100). For Orange county only, the tax rate is listed as 0.0095. So you could extrapolate that if you live in Hillsborough City, the portion of the tax rate attributable to the city is 0.00635. This City of Hillsborough budget document (http://www.ci.hillsborough.nc.us/documents/MasterBudgetDocument-FY08.pdf - broken link) also lists the city tax rate as 0.00635. That's for the FY ending June 30, 2007, of course, so it's about to change.

^Right. It breaks it down for each possible combination. If you are outside city limits, you will also have a fire district, which is why there are so many combinations. If you look up a property you are interested in in the county GIS, you will be able to see which rate code applies to it.

As far as a pool and other amenities, Churton Grove is really your only option. A little further down St. Mary's is Hardscrabble Plantation which has mostly Hillsborough addresses, but is also mostly in Durham County. There are some homes in the neighborhood that are in Orange County though, in case it makes a difference. Really amazing neighborhood that is definitely worth checking out.
