"Doesn't some of my county tax dollars go to them for services". No! None of the real estate taxes that off beach residents of new hanover county or wilmington residents pay is returned to wrightsville beach. Wrightsville beach property owners pay an exorbitant amount of taxes on their property compared to wilmington and other NH co residents. 3-4 times as much. They receive very little from NH co in return. Truth is, the beach towns probably subsidize and enable a lower tax rate for wilmington and other NH co residents. Parking rates would be cheap if they were twice as high.
