Welcome to the Abbeville County Assessor's Office. We hope that you will find the information on our site to be useful to you in understanding your property taxes. We have a total staff of four to help assist our citizen inquiries.
The primary responsibility of the Assessor's Office is to value real property for ad valorem tax purposes. This is so that we each pay our fair share of the cost of the services provided by paying tax in proportion to the value of our property.
The Abbeville County Assessor's Office has implemented a GIS system to better serve our county's citizens. It can be accessed by pointing your browser to http://gis.abbevillecountysc.com/abbeville/default.htm. Please read the notes, instructions and disclaimer carefully before you initially proceed. It is our hope that this effort will benefit our citizens and facilitate commerce and industry in Abbeville County.
