Toilet flange height


I'm tiling a basement bathroom floor (concrete slab). The toilet flange is currently about 1/4" above the the floor. Once the tile is down, I expect that the flange will be about 1/4" below the finished floor height. Will the wax ring accomodate this or do I need to extend the flange?

Probably, they have pretty thick rings. But they also have little flange extenders you can buy, probably at the big box stores:

There are two thicknesses of wax rings, standard and double thickness AFAIK. Measure the distance from the flange to the toilet and see if a double thickness wax ring will work. You may need to measure the thickness of the wax rings at your hardware store to be sure.
