Active duty military exemption benefits for Rental tax bills

Have more questions? Submit a request

For members of the military who are active duty and claim their home of record in a state outside of South Carolina, personal property exemption benefits are available for rental property tax bills. Our office will need the following:

  • A Leave and Earning Statement (LES) for either January, September, or October the same year the bill was originally issued – for example, a 2023 Rental Tax Bill would require either a January 2023, September 2023, or October 2023 LES
  • If a co-owner is listed, the front and back of their dependent military ID if they are a dependent; or their respective January, September, or October LES if they are active duty

The requested documentation can be submitted to our office by filling out the request ticket form linked below and attaching the documents to the form. Copies can be scans or images taken from a smartphone, as long as the information is legible and preferably in PDF or a common image file format (PNG, JPEG).

Note that if a non-dependent or non-active duty member is listed as a co-owner on the account, you may be entitled to a half military exemption instead of the full exemption, and a partial amount of the rental tax bill would need to be paid with the Beaufort County Treasurer’s office (843-341-8404). You will also receive a paid tax receipt from the Treasurer.
