Charleston County considering waving property tax penalties for federal employees


Charleston County is considering waiving property tax penalties for federal employees.

“I spoke with a local TSA employee during a recent visit to the airport and it really made me think about how we can help. Here’s someone working to keep us safe, without compensation, who could use some assistance,” County Council Chairman Elliott Summey said during the 34 day partial government shutdown.

The item will be on the Finance Committee Agenda for Thursday.

Property taxes were originally due on January 15.

If they weren't paid in full, late penalties were assessed on January 16 and February 4. They will also be assessed on March 18.
