Horry County Purchases Land for Augusta Plantation Interchange

Horry County Government officials finalized the purchase of the property for the future Augusta Plantation Interchange and the transaction closed Friday, December 17, 2021. This new interchange along Carolina Bays Parkway (SC 31) connecting Augusta Plantation to Revolutionary War Way is expected to help alleviate congestion and improve traffic in the area.

The property is 23.36 acres and was purchased for approximately $1.15 million. A Request for Qualifications is currently going through the County’s procurement process with the selection of an Engineering Design Firm anticipated in January 2022. Following those negotiations, the County will have more information regarding the construction cost and project timeline. 



Real Estate/Personal Property online/phone tax payments reinstated

Update from the Horry County Treasurer's Office: 

The 2021 Tax Sale has been completed. Real Estate/Personal Property online/phone tax payments have been reinstated and you can now make your real estate or personal property tax notice payments via the internet or by phone. Thank you for your patience during this time.



Update Regarding Certain Stormwater Fee Exemptions

Horry County has become aware of a 2009 amendment to state statute which may provide partial exemption to property owners of certain agricultural, forestlands and undeveloped parcels with respect to county stormwater fees. Staff are currently evaluating the effect of the amendment and within the next few months, the County will be in touch with those property owners that are affected. 

This process will not be completed prior to January 15, 2022 and will not change the current tax bills for county property owners. All taxpayers must still remit payment timely. 

We will provide further information as it becomes available.
