Default New tax changes for 2014

I just read about the new tax changes that were passed in NC, and I'm trying to learn about what the total income and sales taxes are for the city of Asheville in Buncombe county. It appears that the state income tax will be flat at 5.75%.

What is the total sales tax in Asheville on: groceries and prescription meds starting in 2014? On non-food and non-meds items?

Are there local and county taxes for Asheville as well as state sales taxes on most items?

Thanks!

Good info on the link provided by bullie62. However, the amount of sales taxes on groceries in Buncombe county is not answered with this link. We are interested in this info too. We have "googled" and can't find it.

NC Sales Tax Rates by City

To answer another of the the OP's questions, in North Carolina, there is no local or county income tax, only state.

Another link for NC sales tax info.

Groceries are taxed at 2.0% statewide.

Not sure what constitutes "personal property" that is taxed in NC beyond vehicles. Things like boats? Furniture? Cars are subject to personal property taxes in NC. The article below doesn't itemize.

Types of Property to be Taxed

Found a good article on how groceries are taxed in Asheville. It's complicated. Especially when you look at the difference between roasted nuts (full sales tax of 7%) vs raw nuts (grocery tax of 2%).

Sales Tax: Not Simple | Cooperative Grocer Network

Excerpt from above link:
"Recently, Republican legislative leaders began pushing to instate an 8 percent rate on groceries (up 6 percent from the current 2 percent) to help recoup lost income taxes. "

Yikes!

Personal property taxes vary slightly from county to county; here in Haywood County the following vehicles are taxed at a 'market value', which during the 12 yrs I have lived here are quite reasonable in valuation:
motorcycles, motorhomes, boats, boat motors, boat trailers and travel trailers.

I rec'd looking up one's individual County gov site: most are very informative.

Taxes are taxes; every state has some brand/level of revenue gathering. They all spend more than we send them, and they all want more every year. Gov't @ 'work', imo.

Yes, every state will try to get more $$ from residents. I thought it was interesting that NC tried to raise the sales tax on food so much higher (from 2% to 8%). I'm glad that increase was defeated this time around, as was the proposal to tax social security benefits, but those may not be off the table in the future. One way or another, states will collect their taxes.
