In South Carolina, vehicle taxes are paid a year in advance.  If you are renewing your license tag, you can pay your taxes and renewal fee at the Treasurer's Office and eliminate going to the Highway Department.  If you receive a notice for a vehicle you no longer own, you will need to contact the Auditor's Office. To apply for high mileage discount, you must apply at the Auditor's Office and bring a signed statement with your vehicle mileage prior to the due date.

Boats & Motors 

 If you receive a tax notice for a boat or motor you no longer own, you must notify the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources at Post Office Box 167, Columbia, SC 29202.  You will also need to contact the Auditor's Office at 843-479-5608 - there are forms to be completed in the Auditor's Office.

Real estate

Homestead Exemption  - In 1972, the S.C. General Assembly passed the Homestead Exemption Law which provides real estate property tax relief for South Carolinians who are age 65 and over, totally and permanently disabled, or legally blind.  The exemption excludes the first $50,000 from the fair market value of your legal residence.  For information, please refer to the Auditor's page under Elected Officials.
