Charleston County property tax bills will be available online today, said County Auditor Peggy Moseley.
Property owners can see their bills online at www.charlestoncounty.org, then pay online or send a payment, she said. Paper copies of the bills will be mailed in a few days, she said, but people don't have to wait to receive a paper copy of the bill before they pay it. Bills are due Jan. 15.
Moseley made the announcement at Charleston County Council's Tuesday meeting.
The announcement brought to a close a contentious debate between Moseley, who said the county's new computer system was to blame for the delay, and some council members, who blamed the delay, at least in part, on Moseley.
Tax bills usually go out by Sept. 30.
