Homestead Tax Exemption

Many people have received their Tax Assessments for the 2015 Tax Year.  If you are a new property owner or may have just turned 65, you many not know about the Homestead Tax Exemption.

It allows the first $50,000 of the fair market value of your home to be exempt for certain property taxes.  There are several ways to qualify for the exemption, but one way is to be age 65 or older.  In addition, there are also a few restrictions.

For more information click on Charleston County’s website and look for Tax Related Information.

  1. Yes, you have to be a SC resident – and to have been an SC resident for a year before you can claim the $50,000 exemption. Tidelines Staff
