Municipal Fees
Municipal fees may consist of storm water fees, solid waste service fees, property maintenance fees, or demolition fees, etc. Reference Sections 6-1-330, 5-7-300, 5-7-80 and 48-14-120 of the SC Code of Laws. Municipal fees were added to the Assessor database beginning with the 2011 tax year. We are required to manage the addition of the fees to assessor database from a data file provided by the municipalities. If a change is warranted, the municipality will execute refunds or adjustments directly to the taxpayer. The County is not expected to reissue any tax bills due to any municipal fee changes. This includes requests for combinations of parcels to avoid the fees. Taxpayer inquiries about the fees should be directed to the appropriate municipality.
