A. You can make a payment in person at the Orangeburg County Administration Centre or you may also make a payment online. The Treasurer's Office and the Delinquent Tax Collector's Office are located on the first floor. Please make all checks or money orders made payable to Orangeburg County Treasurer. If mailing a payment, please mail the check to:
  • Orangeburg County Treasurer
  • P.O. Box 9000

The Treasurer's Office accepts cash, checks, money orders, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover cards.
A. After your payment is processed, we will mail your receipt to the mailing address listed on the tax bill. If you filled out the change of address information attached to the remittance, we will send the receipt to the new address indicated on the form.
A. No. South Carolina state law does not allow the Treasurer to accept partial payments for individual tax bills.
A. Taxes on motor vehicles and recreational vehicles must be paid before your license plate tags can be renewed. These taxes are due by the last day of the month in which your tag expires.
A. If you pay your vehicle taxes on time, you will receive your registration renewal sticker in the mail (usually within 10 days of payment). Please make sure that your address is correct and that your insurance certification is provided when required. The registration renewal fee charged by the S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles appears on your tax bill every other year. If you pay your vehicle taxes after the expiration of your license tag, you will need to go to a local DMV office to show your paid tax receipt. Then, a new sticker will be issued to you in person. If this occurs in a year when you were charged a renewal fee on your tax bill, the DMV will charge you a late renewal fee at that time.
A. When you purchase a vehicle from a dealership, their personnel are allowed to pick up your registration and license tags without paying the local property taxes. The tax you paid to the dealership at the time of purchase was the South Carolina State sales tax.
A. The State of South Carolina has a stalking law which prohibits a search by tag or VIN number. Therefore, no one can find out your name or address simply by recording your vehicle information and accessing this site.
A. Taxes on real and other personal property (not motor vehicles) are due by January 15 of the following year without penalty. For example, a real estate property tax bill dated November 2000 is payable by January 15, 2001, without penalty. The penalty structure on real estate and other personal property (not motor vehicles) is as follows:
  • 3 % penalty due if paid after January 15
  • additional 7 % due, or 10 % total, if paid after February 5
  • additional 5 % due, or 15 % total, if paid after March 16, and the bill is sent to the Delinquent Tax Department.
