The Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office will begin levying delinquent properties on August 24, 2015. This is the process in which a sign is affixed to property to notify the owner that the property taxes have not been paid. Not all delinquent property will be posted. If the Treasurer’s Office received an appropriately signed delinquent certified notice that delinquent property will not be posted.
Owners who see these signs on their property have until August 31, 2015 to pay the taxes in full before a penalty of $50.00 is added. The taxes must be paid by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 2, 2015 to prevent the property from being auctioned at the Delinquent Tax Sale on Monday, October 5, 2015 at the Charles Lind Brown Gymnasium, 1001 Hamar Street, Beaufort, South Carolina.
No payments will be accepted for the delinquent property on the day of the auction.
