I am about to sign a rental lease with an apartment complex called Atlantic Palms right next to CSU (I am still in Charleston County). The apartment complex city is Charleston even though it is practicallly in Dorchester and Berkeley Counties. Will taxes and cost of living be cheaper here compared to Summerville and Charleston?

Are you sure the complex is not in the City of North Charleston in Charleston County. I have worked on a couple of projects off 78 that were still in Charleston County but see no way that can be City of Charleston.

If you rent you are not paying the property tax, the owner/complex is. Cost of living will be pretty much the same as North Chuck or Summerville as that is where you will likely be going to do most of your shopping/dining/etc.

You wont see a big difference in your taxes. I used to live there and I can tell you from personal experience that the taxes are not bad at all. I've also lived in S'ville as a comparison.

Nice complex with a great staff btw.
