Property Tax Reform Act #388 of 2006 and the voter referendum that followed changed the S.C. Constitution and effectively granted the authority to define market value for property tax purposes to the S.C. General Assembly. This authority is in addition to the market value definition found in the S.C. Constitution but may now be changed at the General Assembly’s discretion. The new definition limits valuation increases during reappraisals to 15% of the base year value or a current market value when an assessable transfer of interest occurs or the value as determined on appeal. Each property is taxed based on its own unique ownership and acquisition circumstance. Therefore, taxable values may differ greatly on similar properties.
The next reappraisal is in 2018. State law requires reappraisal every five years. The last reappraisal was in 2013.
