  • Column: Avoid trouble: Update your address with tax officials

    At the end of September each year, Lancaster County mails property tax bills for real estate (homes and commercial buildings) and personal property (boats, business furniture and equipment, manufacturing, etc.).
    While nobody likes getting a tax bill, it’s important that they are sent to the correct address. Having the correct address on file is the taxpayer’s responsibility, and that prevents you from having a late fee due to never receiving the bill.

    At the same time, businesses owned by men and by whites are more valuable than minority and female-owned businesses, and the difference in value in South Carolina is even greater than the average national difference.
