South Carolina law mandates that counties conduct a reassessment of all real properties every five years, and 2019 is a reassessment year for Horry County.  If your property value has increased by $1,000 or more since the last reassessment, you will receive a notice from the Horry County Assessor.  That notice will tell you three things:  the previous taxable value, the new taxable value and the estimated market value of your property.

FIRST THINGS FIRST: The Horry County Sheriff’s Office will never request money from you for failing to show up for jury duty. 


It has come to our attention that a scam is circulating and involves a person claiming to be someone from the sheriff’s office. The scammer then demands money and claims you’ll be arrested if you don’t send the money. 

If you receive a call from a scammer, report it to us at 843-915-5450. Please SHARE and tell your family, friends and loved ones. We need to spread the word. Thank you!
