For those who live downtown...in the Augusta Road, North Main, Parkins Mills neighborhoods etc. Do you pay both city and county taxes? We've considered moving downtown...but the thought of paying double taxes isn't pleasant. Anyone have any insights?

Thanks.

curious as to what the amount of double taxes down there would be compared to up here (metro DC/MD/VA area). . .

just think - you have 2 sets of taxes to itemized on your tax return!!

They would be an order of magnitude lower than you would pay in the Metro DC , VA, MD area. I will pull a number out of my azz and say probably 1/3rd (If County & City) what you are paying up there if it is your primary residence qualifying for the homestead exclusion.

I pay only county property tax but it is 1/5 what I paid for a similar valued property in the Northeast.

Well that's good to know should we relocate down there, which is a distinct possibility. But of course, it's all relative. I'm sure the paybase down there is also a 1/3 of up here.

Default Ok...

But what does that mean? We pay 1600 in taxes on a 275k house outside the city, any idea what that would equate to downtown?

Pick a street name then go to this site; choose a property, copy the MAP # and then click on "For Property Tax Information", choose Real Estate and paste that MAP # in the box.

Real Property Search - Greenville County, S.C.

We pay city of Mauldin and County and ours are under $1100/yr.

Easy peasy! 2*1600=3200.

Rough estimate based on the last time we looked at downtown properties. Taxes are roughly double out county properties.

The taxes on this house 107 Ridgecrest Dr Greenville SC - Home For Sale and Real Estate Listing - MLS #20124100 - Realtor.com®

were last $1677

Likewise, this listing 118 Newman St Greenville SC - Home For Sale and Real Estate Listing - MLS #1227976 - Realtor.com®

were last $1639

You can see from these listings, you are likely to get more house than you would where you live now for that $275,000.

Keep in mind, these taxes levels are based on owner occupied dwellings.

Shadetree930, you shouldn't mislead people without first checking the data.
