Charleston Property Owners Receive Reassessment Notices


Charleston County property tax reassessments traditionally have been met with much sound and fury. This year, not so much.

Perhaps it’s because the county’s new values, though they’re set at Dec. 31, 2008, still reflect the housing bubble’s burst. Property owners just aren’t seeing the big spikes as they did in prior years. Or perhaps it’s because state law now caps properties at 15 percent. Even if the county says someone’s property value rose rapidly, it won’t necessarily mean a much bigger bill.

Or maybe it’s because the county has more educational information online, meaning fewer people have bothered to call. Assessor Toy Glennon thinks it’s a bit of all of the above. “The calls have been quiet,” she said. “They’ve just been light.”
