Yes, you have until the taxes are due to appeal in writing to the Auditor’s office. It is important that you contact SC Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and call the Auditor’s office when you receive a tax bill, if after December 31st of the previous year, you have junked, abandoned, destroyed, or sold the water craft. If the property taxes are unpaid, the taxes follow the watercraft and become the responsibility of the new owner, if you try to sell the watercraft.
Someone from the Auditor’s office will review your personal property appeal or discuss other status of the watercraft.
The appeal of the value of the boat or airplane does not extend the due date of the taxes.
