Dorchester County is currently accepting applications for the Senior Citizens Tax Work-Off Program through February 21, 2020.

The Senior Citizen Tax Work-Off Program permits senior citizens the opportunity to trade valuable time and needed skills for government services in exchange for compensation equal to their County property tax obligations.


Residents 60 years old (or older), that own property (in their name) in Dorchester County and reside at the said property are eligible to apply. 


Senior citizens that participate in the SCTWOP are compensated at minimum wage ($7.25 per hour) for the sum equal to the portion of the property tax bill designated for County Operating, County Debt, and Capital Improvements.

Note: Applicants are responsible for paying their taxes directly to the Dorchester County Treasurer by the appropriate deadlines.

Participants will be placed in various departments throughout the County and receive a check after they complete the requisite number of hours calculated.

How to Apply

Applications must be returned to Lucretia McCloud with the Dorchester County Business Services Department, by February 21, 2020, to be eligible.

Residents must include a copy of their Property Tax Bill and Driver’s License or other photo identification as proof of residency.
