Assessment Notices will be mailed soon to property owners with the 2015 Tax Values. Until our values are certified and notices are mailed, we can only verify the 2014 values.
Our office is in the process of measuring properties for reassessment. Please be aware that our Appraisers are out and about and could be visiting your property. They should have their ID Badges and a flyer will be left on the door. If you have any questions about this, please contact our office at 843-832-0162.
(This form is 8.5 x 14 in size. Please adjust your paper and printer if needed. Also, if you have problems opening this document, you may need a newer version of Adobe).
**Beginning July, 2015, our Department will be charging a fee of $30 for returned checks on services provided.
