The Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office began levying delinquent properties on Aug. 22.
This is the process in which a Notice of Levy sign is affixed to a property as notification to the owner that the property taxes have not been paid. Not all properties will be posted.
Those that have signed and returned the Certified Delinquent Tax Notice or have paid the property taxes due, will not be posted.
On Sept. 4, an additional penalty of $25 will be added and personal checks will no longer be accepted.
The Beaufort County Delinquent Tax Sale will take place on Monday, Oct. 7 at the Buckwalter Recreation Center in Bluffton. The taxes must be paid by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4 to prevent the property from being auctioned at the Delinquent Tax Sale. No payments will be accepted for delinquent properties on the day of the auction.
