The Beaufort County Treasurer's Office is preparing notices for delinquent properties.
The signs notify taxpayers who did not return certified notices delivered in late spring. The signs are affixed to the property for which taxes are owed.
Owners who see these signs on their property have until Aug. 31 to pay their taxes in full; otherwise, another penalty will be added to the amount due.
Property owners then have until Oct. 4 to pay delinquent taxes on their personal property. If they do not, the property will be auctioned away Oct. 7. No payments will be accepted for the delinquent property on the day of the auction.
