From staff reports

In an effort to provide flexibility to Beaufort County’s taxpayers who have been affected by COVID-19, the Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office has extended the Installment Payment Program for mobile homes, residential and commercial real property to all taxpayers.

The Installment Payment Program is a pay-in-advance program that allows customers to pay the upcoming year’s taxes ahead of the annual tax bills being issued.

These newly relaxed requirements will provide taxpayers with the freedom to pay their 2020 property tax payments in advance, in an amount they are most comfortable with and as frequently as they would like. Taxpayers already participating in the program are automatically eligible.

Pre-payments may be made at any time and in any amount up until Oct. 15, 2020.

“We want to be there for our customers and the way we can do that is providing a way that they can pre-pay their future tax bill in a manner that they are most comfortable with.” Beaufort County Treasurer Maria Walls said in a release.

To apply for the Installment Program, simply complete the online form. To learn more about the Installment Payment Program, call 843-255-2600.
