Delinquent Personal Property - Watercraft
If you sell your boat or motor, a bill of sale will need to be completed so that the new owner can get it registered through SCDNR. Once the boat and/or motor has been registered, SCDNR will send the updated information to the Lancaster County Auditor so that future tax bills can be generated in the new owners name. PLEASE NOTE: If the boat and/or motor is not properly registered with the Department of Natural Resources, the bill will generate under the previous owner's name.
If you are purchasing a boat and/or motor, PLEASE check to insure that there are no taxes due.
