The Tax Assessor's primary responsibility is to list, assess and appraise all taxable real and personal property each year and furnish tax base figures to the County, Municipalities, and Fire Departments for budget purposes. It is the Assessor’s responsibility to assure that all properties are appraised fairly and equitably.
A large portion of Beaufort County's general fund comes from property taxes generated through the assessment of real estate, personal property, and motor vehicles. Property owners each pay a share of the cost of County services by paying taxes proportional to the value of their property. Property taxes are based on the assessed value of land, buildings, and personal property.
