Charlotte, NC - higher property tax for out of state landlords?

4 Replies

Does anyone know if Charlotte, North Carolina imposes higher property tax if you are owning the property as an out of state landlord?

I was told the typical or average property tax rate in the area is approx 1% - 1.5% of the assessed value of the ppty, does that sound reasonable?



I've never heard of a higher tax rate for an out of state landlord but again I live here in Charlotte so I have not looked into that directly. Yes, the property tax will be between 1-1.5%. The actual millage for Charlotte is $1.2844 per $100 of assessed value. Here are the millage rates for all of Mecklenburg county.

@Mary Joe Charlotte and Mecklenburg County do not have a higher tax rate for out of state owner. Today the combined rate is 1.28% not including misc fees.

I own a property in Charlotte and am not being charged any additional fees for being out of state. My property taxes are in line with what Chris and Jared mentioned above. Cheers!
