When you buy a car in NC and you are a state resident and register the car in NC, they will charge you 3% sales tax of the purchase price. A onetime only state sales tax. On a NC registered car, each year you pay the county property tax based on the appraised value which is typical from KBB values. The tax is based on what the county levied for personal property in that county. It varies greatly from county to county.
