2013 Union County NC Property Taxes--A Guide and Comparison with Charlotte Taxes

August is the month when Union County NC homeowners find property tax bills in their mailboxes.  Property taxes are set each year by the county commissioners who establish a tax rate.  The tax rate is multiplied by the assessed value of the property to determine the annual tax bill.  The tax bill may also include some fees, such as fire district fees and storm water fees.  There are no separate taxes or fees for the school system.

If a property is located within one of Union County’s small towns, the property owner will also receive a tax bill from the municipality.  The lone exception to municipal taxes in Union County is the Town of Hemby Bridge, which levies no property taxes.

While county and municipal tax bills are issued in August, the bills are not due until the beginning of January.  Most homeowners or their lenders if they are escrowing for taxes pay their tax bills in November/December.  The current tax bill covers July 2013 through June 2014.
