Beaufort tax amnesty deadline nears

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - Those you haven't taken advantage of Beaufort's tax amnesty program might be some of the few left.

Beaufort's new treasurer Doug Henderson said that since his announcement almost two weeks ago, 2,500 people have taken advantage of the offer.

Henderson said that in the long run it not only saves, taxpayers money, but the county as well. The deadline is 5 p.m. Friday to take advantage of waiving real estate and personal property taxes that are past due.
