Under the leadership of Wayne Welch, the Assessor’s Office is responsible for the assignment of values to all real estate properties and mobile homes; not the tax amounts.

Note: Our Summerville Office will be closed September 27th from 10am to 1pm.  Please call or visit our St. George office if services are needed during this time.      

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 Assessor’s Office charges a $30 fee for all returned checks.
