Horry County Tax Appeals Backing Up


Several thousand Horry County property owners not only have new tax bills for 2011 to contend with, but are still waiting on news from their 2010 appeals.

Horry County Assessor Rendel Mincey said there are about 5,600 appeals still in the wings out of the more than 20,500 that owners filed in 2010 asking for another review of their property’s value.

Mincey said the 2010 total followed the 12,000 appeals the assessor’s office received in 2009. The 2011 tax bills were set to be mailed at the end of October.

The real estate market collapse and decline in prices in recent years drove many property owners to seek a reduction in the value of their property used to determine their taxes.
