Raleigh (and NC in general) has become more blue so more taxes with deteriorating living environment.
#James Dubreck on Jul 17, 2017 :
Your cool excludes taxes imposed on Raleigh residents.
For example: automobile property tax averages $600 per year
Automobile inspection+registration averages $70 per year.
Personal property taxes on pets, tools, recreational items, jewelry, etc. Average 350.00 per year.
Gas tax is .56/gal state
Sales tax is on EVERYTHING, FOOD, CLOTHES, NECESSITIES,etc.
