How is the tax bill of a home determined in North Carolina?

Real property is appraised at 100% of market value and includes land, buildings, structures, and improvements. State law requires counties to reappraise every eight years, but many counties reappraise every four. A bill can be a combination of tax rates. For example, a home inside the City of Asheville and Asheville City School districts will have three separate tax rates represented on a bill: the Buncombe County rate, the City of Asheville rate, and the Asheville City School rate. All rates are totaled to calculate the total tax liability. Tax rate estimates for our mountain communities can be found on page 127 of the Beverly-Hanks Welcome Magazine.

John Madden was with us start to finish. This process started over 6 months ago and John was always willing to tour homes whenever we were in the area. He went above and beyond allowing several other family members to visit our final choice even though we weren't with them. When I had a hiccup with the closing of my previous home, all it took was one quick call to John to make all the necessary adjustments in NC. That was a huge relief as I was trying to load a moving truck within a limited time window. John Madden was top notch from day 1. I give John my highest recommendation.
