tax appealAbout 1,450 property assessment appeals have been submitted out of 65,000 taxable pieces of property countywide, Orangeburg County Assessor Jim McLean reported to county council on Monday. McLean said a 2 percent appeal rate is considered a low rate during a reassessment year.

Those who appealed their assessments will receive a corrected bill within a few weeks. If someone overpays their taxes, a refund will be made. The deadline to pay taxes remains Jan. 15.

The appeal period ends Dec. 29. Those who want to appeal are asked to submit a tax map number, reasons why the appeal is being made, the taxpayer’s assessment of the property’s value and a signature.  If you need assistance in appealing commercial property taxable values, please email
