Per Capita Property Tax Burden


The Target for this measure is the average of the City of Durham's peer cities: Charlotte, Raleigh, Cary, Greensboro, and Winston Salem. Chapel Hill is not included in the target calculation due to lack of available data.


The Department of the North Carolina State Treasurer, Local Government Division publishes this data on its website annually. The data comes from each municipality's Annual Financial Information Report (AFIR). The update for FY 2019 will occur during the summer of 2019. Note: Chapel Hill figures are not available via this source.

Next Steps

The John Locke Foundation has not updated their data for Per Capita Tax Burden since FY 2010. After review, it was agreed in April 2014 by the City's Implementation Team that a new measure, Per Capita Property Tax Revenue, would be implemented.
