The Assessor’s Office is responsible for the assignment of values to all real estate properties and mobile homes; not the tax amounts.
Note: Dorchester County Appraisers are out measuring properties and could be visiting your property soon. Appraisers should have a Dorchester County Identification Badge and may leave a flyer on the door if you are not home. If you have any questions about someone that may have visited your property, please contact the Assessor’s Office at (843) 832-0162.
The Auditor’s Office oversees homestead exemptions, appeals on personal property, the assessment of motor vehicles, watercraft (boats, motors, jet ski’s) aircraft and business personal property (assessment values provided by the SC Dept. of Revenue), administers all refunds for real and personal property and staffs the Forfeited Land Commission (FLC).
