- Delinquent Tax Sale
The delinquent tax sale is an open auction held annually on the first Monday in October and is the forced collection of property taxes. The tax sale will be held on October 2, 2017 at the Charles Lind Brown Activity Center, 1001 Hamar Street, Beaufort. Bidders may sign in from 8:00 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. and bidding will begin at 10:00 a.m.
To avoid the auction of property, delinquent taxpayers must pay before 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 29, 2017. Payments will not be accepted the day of the tax sale.
Properties offered at the Beaufort County Tax Sale are auctioned in accordance with South Carolina State Statute 12-51-50.
A tax sale and a foreclosure sale are two separate auctions and performed for different purposes. The Treasurer’s Office does not handle foreclosures. If you need information about foreclosure sales you can visit the Master in Equity’s website.
