Greensboro, NC -- Living in Greensboro has its advantages.
There's an expansive network of parks. It draws more sporting events than any other city its size in the country.
But one thing is not on the list: the property tax rate.
Somehow Greensboro has managed to establish the highest tax rate among the largest five cities in North Carolina.
Ranked by the highest to lowest tax rates, you see Greensboro's the most expensive, and it's not even close.
The largest and second largest cities, Charlotte and Raleigh, have the two lowest tax rates.
Winston-Salem has the third highest rate.
But here's what this means to you in dollars and cents.
If you live in Greensboro, and your house is worth $150,000, you're paying about $950 in annual property taxes.
But you only pay $560 for the same house in Raleigh.
That's a difference of $390.
It's $290 more expensive than Charlotte and $235 more expensive than Winston-Salem.
