LOCAL LEADERS TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST RALEIGH BOND PROPOSAL
Raleigh, NC – Representatives from Americans for Prosperity, the Wake County Taxpayers Association and other Raleigh citizens will join together Monday morning to speak against Raleigh’s proposed $56 million housing and transportation bond proposal.
The bond’s approval would add .91 cents per $100 valuation to the City of Raleigh property tax rate. In layman’s terms, the median priced Raleigh home ($188,139) would see a $17.11 property tax increase. While Raleigh’s website only references housing, “property” includes both real property (land and buildings, etc.) and personal property (vehicles, boats, mobile homes, aircraft, etc.)
