How NORTH CAROLINA Taxes Retirees (Blog)

North Carolina has a flat tax of 5.49% and basically everything is subject to taxation, except for Social Security.

State and local sales tax puts North Carolina smack dab in the middle of the rest of the nation. Not low, but not high either. Groceries are not taxed by the state but can be by the localities.
