Charlotte once again has the highest per capita tax burden — almost $2600 for fiscal 2008 — of any large city in the state. By about $300 per person, so it is not even close.
And understand that only resort communities at the beach and in the mountains best Charlotte’s total per person tax take. Think about that. A town with a relatively small year-round population can spread its tax bite over tens of thousands of visitors. Not so Charlotte, which it still not a destination location no matter the spin coming from Uptown.
