Tax Deed Sale

South Carolina’s Delinquent Tax Sale is also known as a Tax Deed Sale and is usually held in October, November and December.

The opening bid is a combination of delinquent taxes, current taxes and fees rounded up. Bidders bid up the opening bid in increments set by the county. The bidder who bids the highest amount wins the bid.

The current owner has a 12-month right of redemption. The winning bidder receives a percentage of interest back if the owner redeems the property within the year. The amount of interest paid can never exceed the opening bid amount. If the property is not redeemed, the tax deed will be recorded within 60 to 90 days after the end of the redemption period. A tax deed is not a warranty deed.

Refer to South Carolina Code of Laws Title 12 for further details pertaining to all aspects of property taxes.

Delinquent Tax Sale listings will be available for purchase approximately three (3) weeks prior to the sale.  Click on the county to add that Tax Sale List to your cart.

Horry County no longer provides the Taxes Due. Approximate Taxes Due is based on the last paid taxes matching that Assessed Value with the current 2012 Assess Value. Column O, Value Increase/Decrease, indicates a change that may affect the amount of Taxes Due. When no past taxes have been paid, UNKNOWN is shown in the Approx Taxes Due column.
