NOTICE OF REASSESSMENT

Edgefield County is in the process of our County wide Reassessment Program which all counties are required under South Carolina law to implement every five years. Our last reassessment was done in 2021 and we expect to complete the current reassessment by December 31,2025.
Appraisers will come out to your house to make an inspection of your property. They will be wearing an identification badge with their picture and name preprinted on the badge. They will also be riding in vehicles that have the Assessor’s office emblem.
The appraisers will proceed to inspect the property by walking around the house if necessary to make sure that all improvements have been identified. The appraisers also notes whether the structure has a deck, garage, swimming pool or other amenities. If any additions or improvements have been made to the property the appraisers will have to measure.
We appreciate your cooperation and want to make this process as smooth as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at
