Unclaimed overage information is handled at the Charleston County Delinquent Tax Office in the form of manual ledgers. This ledger includes the TMS/Parcel/PIN numbers sold at tax sale, the names of the defaulting taxpayers, the amount of taxes paid through the sale, the bid amounts, how much overage remains, to whom any overage has been dispersed and when it was dispersed. In order to view this information, you must schedule an appointment. It will insure the availability of space and staff to accommodate you. For this reason, we cannot accept walk-ins.
Because a staff member will be assigned to your appointment, there is a cost of $25 per hour to view these ledgers. Our office can accept cash and check only made out to Charleston County Delinquent Tax. We will require a government issued picture ID and an upfront payment for the first hour when you arrive. Your ID will be held by staff until all manual ledgers are accounted for before you leave.
We currently have ledgers available for 2015, 2016 and 2017 tax sale years. All prior tax sale years have already been escheated to the Charleston County general fund.
The Overage information is not available in electronic format and you will have to come in to copy down this information by hand. Due to the dynamic nature of our manual ledgers, we are not able to copy or duplicate them for you.
Pursuant to S.C. Code§30-2-50, obtaining or using public records for commercial solicitation directed to any person in the State of South Carolina is unlawful, and is punishable by a fine of up to $500 and imprisonment up to one year, or both.
In accordance to S.C. Code§30-2-50, the County may deny your request as a reasonable measure to ensure that no person or private entity obtains or distributes personal information obtained from a public record for commercial solicitation.
