The Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office will begin levying delinquent properties on August 7, 2017. This is the process in which a Notice of Levy sign is affixed to a property to notify the owner that the property taxes have not been paid. To avoid a property being posted, the delinquent property owner must sign and return their certified notice or pay the property taxes due.
On September 1, 2017 an additional penalty of $50.00 will be added and personal checks will no longer be accepted.
The Beaufort County Delinquent Tax Sale will take place on Monday, October 2, 2017 at the Charles Lind Brown Gymnasium, 1001 Hamar Street, Beaufort, SC 29902. The taxes must be paid by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 29, 2017 to prevent the property from being auctioned at the Delinquent Tax Sale. No payments will be accepted for delinquent properties on the day of the auction.
