Advanced Installment Plan

Post Date:10/29/2019 3:30 PM

Dorchester County Treasurer, Cindy Chitty reminds property owners of the Advanced Installment Plan (AIP) for property taxes.

The AIP was created to assist property owners with paying their annual property taxes in six installments throughout the year, in lieu of a lump sum payment. The AIP is not available to property owners who pay taxes via an escrowed account through a mortgage company or tax service.

Property owners who would like to take part in the AIP for tax year 2020 are asked to complete and submit the AIP application online at or pick up a printed application at one of the Treasurer’s Offices conveniently located in Summerville and St. George.

Treasurer Chitty said “This program benefits taxpayers at all level whether you own one property or multiple properties. It is an easy process without any additional fees for the service.”

The online application, powered by Simpligov, is part of a County initiative to put County news and services at residents' fingertips and reduce wait times.

For more information about the AIP, property owners are asked to contact the Dorchester County Treasurer’s Office at (843) 563-0165 or (843) 832-0165.
