County Auditor is an elected official who is instrumental in the collection of property tax, a large source of revenue for local government, by preparing and maintaining the tax roll.

The primary responsibilities of the County Auditor are to assemble the county’s records of real and personal property and to calculate individual property taxes to be paid each year.

The Auditor prepares the official tax book, which lists the owners of taxable property, the real and personal property that they own, and the equalized value of that property. The Auditor provides a copy of the tax book to the Treasurer. This book is the Treasurer’s warrant for the collection of taxes, assessments, and penalties. Both property tax books, held by the Auditor and Treasurer, are called the county duplicate.

The specific duties of the Auditor are spelled out in Title 12, Chapter 39 of the South Carolina Code of Laws. Most of the duties of the Auditor are regulated by the South Carolina Department of Revenue, although some of the Auditor’s activities fall under the regulation of the South Carolina Comptroller General’s Office.
