Check the Mail for Exemption Audit Notices
If you received a bright green envelope that says "Horry County Exemption Audit Notice," please do not throw it out.
The letter inside is a reminder that the Horry County Assessor's Office is missing documentation regarding your legal residence application.
Notices were sent out Tuesday, April 18, 2023, to anyone who was given "provisional or conditional" approval of their legal residence status, which effects the 4% resident property tax rate for a limited time, pending submission of supporting documents.
Missing documents can be submitted via email, fax, or mail. The deadline to turn in missing documents to avoid a rebill at the higher property tax rate (6%) is Wednesday, May 31, 2023.
