Chester County Reassessment 2016

The Chester County Tax Assessor is required by law to reassess all property every five years.  The 2016 reassessment has been completed and notices will be mailed to each property owner within the next two weeks.  Please note:  this is not a tax bill.  The amount in the “assessment” column is the assessed value of your property, NOT THE TAXES DUE.  If you have not received a reassessment notice by July 15, please check with the assessor’s office.

The property tax was created in South Carolina in 1915 and until the late 1920s was the major source for state and local revenue. Today, property tax represents about 20 percent of all state and local taxes. It continues to be a main source of revenue for our state's public schools.
