Downtown Municipal Service District

North Carolina General Statutes allow cities to create Municipal Service Districts.  City ordinance specifies the creation of a Municipal Service District (MSD) in the downtown area. Property within this district is taxed at an additional tax rate on top of the ad valorem tax rate for the general city ($0.48 per $100 of valuation).  The additional MSD tax rate is $0.23 per $100 in property valuation. All the revenue collected from the MSD is utilized by the City of Concord for infrastructure and other improvements inside the district.
