Office of Assessor

Dear Spartanburg County Citizens,

As your Spartanburg County Assessor, it is my privilege to share with you the latest available Spartanburg County real property information.

Tax Year 2015 change of assessment notifications, dated October 15, were mailed on October 13, 2015. For those property owners who receive a 2015 assessment notification, the deadline to file an appeal is January 15, 2016. Taxpayers who do not receive a notice are permitted to file an appeal on or before January 15, 2016.

Any appeal received after January 15, 2016 must be processed for the 2016 tax year in accordance with the South Carolina Code of Laws Section 12-60-2510 (A)(4) which states, "An appeal submitted before the first penalty date applies for the property tax year for which that penalty would apply. An appeal submitted on or after the first penalty date applies for the succeeding property tax year."

Please remember, filing an appeal does not extend the time to pay your tax notice. The tax notice must be paid by the due date. Penalties will apply if the tax notice is not paid by the date indicated on the notice. Upon resolution of the appeal, an adjusted tax notice will be prepared and the difference, if any, will be refunded or billed accordingly. The 2015 tax notices are due by Friday, January 15, 2016; tax notices unpaid after this date will incur penalties for late payment.

Also, when you receive your 2015 tax notice or a 2015 change of assessment notification please review the document to insure the property classification is correct. Please contact my office immediately if your property classification is incorrect.

If you are eligible for the owner occupied legal residence special assessment or the agricultural use special assessment and fail to file the proper application, your tax liability may be over three times higher because it will be classified at the other real property rate. Failure to apply may delay a revised tax bill beyond December 31st, it will disrupt payments and balances of escrow accounts with your mortgage company and it will affect the county's total assessment base, which is used to calculate millage rates. The 2015 tax year deadline to apply for the legal residence special assessment and the agricultural use special assessment is January 15, 2016.

Tax notices and any subsequent mailings will be mailed to the last known address as indicated by the assessor records. It is the taxpayer's responsibility to notify the Assessor's Office of mailing address changes and property classification changes.

Please feel free to contact me - or any member of my staff - if you have questions.
