Treasurer’s Office Streamlining Address Change Requests

Hazel Digital Media Admin - Tuesday, June 30, 2015

To help ensure that taxpayers receive tax bills as timely and efficiently as possible, the Beaufort County Treasurer's Office will assume the responsibility of processing all requests to change mailing addresses for taxpayers starting May 1, 2015. Such requests had previously rested with the County Assessor’s and Auditor’s Offices. The County hopes the shift will make this process more convenient for taxpayers, while helping to avoid unnecessary penalties and reducing costs associated with remailing tax bills. “The Treasurer’s Office has noticed a significant increase in the volume of tax bills returned lately. We want to remind taxpayers of the importance in keeping their mailing address current with the County.
