Calculations are based on $100 per valuation
To calculate the tax on your home, let's assume it has a taxable value of $125,000. Also assume it is located within the City of Kannapolis. The City of Kannapolis ($0.63) and Cabarrus County ($0.74) combined tax rates for 2020 are $1.37. This is assessed per hundred dollars of assessed value.
To calculate the tax, multiply the assessed value by the tax rate and divide by 100. Calculation: $125,000 (assessed value) x 1.37 (tax rate)/100 = $1,712.50
