Union County NC Property Taxes. How much are they? This is one of the first questions that I am asked when someone is thinking of making a move to the area. Especially someone who is leaving one of the high-tax states in the northeast. This is the time of year when local governments adopt their budgets for the coming year and set a tax rate to fund the budget. This process has been completed in Union County NC and its towns. The graph below shows what a homeowner will pay in 2009 property taxes for a home with an assessed value of $200,000.
Why are Union County NC property taxes different for the county and the various municipalities? The variations have to do with the services provided by the local governments. Taxes are lowest in unincorporated Union County where services such as garbage pickup and street lights are not provided. Residents of the towns pay town taxes in addition to the county tax and receive additional services, such as a town police department, garbage pickup and street lights. In general, the towns with the highest taxes have their own police departments.
