Lower Real Estate taxes:
Here at Lake Norman, which is just north of Charlotte, taxes range from .50 per $100. of tax value to $1.50 per $100 of tax value. For example, on a $500,000 home taxes can range from $2,500 per year to $7,500. Per year depending on which county you choose on Lake Norman. HOA dues and golf club memberships tend to be substantially lower than the NY, NJ and Long Island areas.
Your Military Pension income may be tax exempt:
Military retirement pay may not be taxed at all if it meets certain requirements including if the veteran was “vested in the retirement system” for five years as of August 12, 1989. Otherwise, tax exemptions may be applicable up to $4,000 for single returns and $8,000 for joint returns. One exception to the tax on non-vested military retirement pay over $4,000 is Veterans Affairs disability retirement pay. This type of military retirement pay is not subject to state or federal income tax. North Carolina also has a program that gives disabled veterans a break on their property tax.
