Thousands of Reassessment Notices Returned to Beaufort Co

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT COUNTY, S.C. -

In the lowcountry, nearly 6,000 reassessment notices have been returned to sender, the sender is the Beaufort county Assessor's office.

In September, that office mailed more than 126,000 notices to taxpayers notifying them of any tax changes, but many were returned due to things like incorrect addresses.

But don't worry if you haven't gotten yours, all you have to do is log onto the Beaufort county web site, and they will walk you through the process of finding your name in their database.

But County Assessor, Ed Hughes says, don't wait, because time is ticking.

"The deadline for appealing this is December 11th... Its coming up, and that deadline, the tolling date is based on the postmark date. However, I have made the policy decision that if the owner's name is in our database, and the notice was not timely delivered, and they come in after December 11th with their tax notice, and wish to file an appeal. I will allow them to file an appeal."

However, you can only file an appeal until the 15th of January.

If you haven't yet received your notice you can go to the Beaufort County web site to see if you are on that list.

That web site: www.bcgov.net and just follow the steps.
