THE FINAL REDEMPTION NOTICE
RE: SALE OF PROPERTY FOR DELINQUENT TAXES
2019 TAX SALE ONLY
 

This notice is to advise you that the property listed above was sold at public auction for delinquent taxes on November 4, 2019. Section 12 - 51- 90 of the South Carolina Code of Laws provides that the defaulting taxpayer, any grantee from the owner or any mortgage or judgement creditor may redeem the above property within (12) months from the date of the delinquent tax sale by paying to this office delinquent taxes, penalties, and costs together with the appropriate percent of interest of the total bid price at the tax sale. On September 30, 2020 South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster signed legislation extending the redemption period an additional (12) months. However, a lawsuit challenging the extended redemption period was filed in the South Carolina Supreme Court and on June 30th the Court ruled that the extension of the redemption period was unconstitutional. On July 21, 2021, the S.C. Department of Revenue issued a Government Services Division Decision outlining recommended procedures to complete the 2019 tax sale procedures. In accordance with this decision and Title 12 of the S.C. Code of Laws Annotated, this final redemption notice is being issued.

If you wish to redeem the above described property, the final redemption date is on or before September 22, 2021.

NO PERSONAL OR BUSINESS CHECKS ACCEPTED. MONEY ORDER, CASHIERS CHECK, CERTIFIED CHECK OR CASH ONLY!!!
