Each year, tax-related confusion sets in on a number of Americans. Those owning property in Horry County can expect a new look to their bills in an attempt to reduce this perplexity. Plus, these changes have the possibility of saving Horry County thousands of dollars each year.
Amid an Administrative Committee meeting held by the Horry County Council, Treasurer Angie Jones claimed that the Assessor’s office and the County Auditor will work together to reduce muddled notices that weren’t specific enough. Taxpayers can expect more straightforward claims to be sent their way.
“Our tax notices have literally, what I call, turned into a monster coupon book,” Jones explains. “We’ve got so many inserts in them. Taxpayers are looking at the inserts and not looking at the tax notice or looking at the tax notice and not looking at the inserts.”
These efforts will go on to save what the county projects to be more than $50,000. Residents can expect personal property tax notices to see similar changes as well.
