Welcome to the Greenwood County Assessor's Office. We hope that you will find the information on our site to be useful to you in understanding your property taxes. We have a staff of five licensed appraisers and four support staff personnel available to answer your questions.

The primary responsibility of the Assessor's Office is to value real property for ad valorem tax purposes. This is so that we each pay our fair share of the cost of the services provided by paying tax in proportion to the value of our property.

  • Function: the reason for our existence and our responsibilities

  • Property Classifications: how property is classified and the tax rate, as well as explanations of possible tax relief and/or exemptions.

  • Property Values: understanding the three different values and assessable transfers.

  • Property Valuation: how property is appraised for tax purposes. 

  • Legal Residence: explanation of the requirements to qualify for this tax relief.

  • Agricultural Use: how property qualifies for a substantial tax break for bona fide agricultural use- 5 or more acres of agricultural timber use and 10 or more acres for crops, which includes pasture. 

  • Roll Back Taxes: explains how up to 5 years taxes are due on agricultural use property that is changed to a different use class such as a subdivision or commercial development. 

  • Reassessment: explains the process for the re-evaluation of all taxable real estate in the county as prescribed by state law. 

  • Appeal Process: explains the process should you disagree with your fair market value, use classification, ratio, etc. Appeals based on the tax bill amount cannot be considered as grounds for an assessment appeal.
