My real estate taxes are too high. Why, and how can I get them reduced?
All residential and commercial property in York County is assessed at 6%, except an owner-occupied legal residence. If the property is your residence, it may qualify for the 4% assessment instead of the 6% assessment. Tax amounts are based also on the appraised value of the property. If you have questions about your assessment ratio or your property value, contact the Tax Assessor’s Office at 803-684-8526.
