Yep...will cost an extra $40 a year on a 200k home. SC just lowered their prop tax while raising sales tax by 1 cent...that way everyone pays and not just homeowners.

the best part is the county commissnors who job isnt full time by any means got a 3.5% raise out of it

IMO was their way of sticking their toungue out at the voter for voting against the bond referendum in 2005

Yes, thats true. I have heard it time and time again that "its still not as bad as up north."

Well the amount of growth will force a constant rise of taxes and cost of living, especially in the fastest growing county in NC, Union county. With Iredell and Cabarrus counties not far behind.

But the good news is Union will always be "1/2" of Meck. But it will go up as Meck goes up etc.

Thing is you really don't benefit from property taxes unless the home is a 350k+- home. Homes below that really do not gen that much money for the county. Least that's what I heard. And in Union county, even Meck, there are a TON of homes under 350k..
