In order to better serve the citizens of the City of Gaffney, Cherokee County will begin collecting property taxes on behalf of the City of Gaffney beginning with the 2018 property tax year. Property owners will receive a single tax notice for both City of Gaffney and Cherokee County property taxes. The purpose of this joint tax notice is to simplify the payment and collection process for both the taxpayer and the governmental bodies. A joint property tax notice is the most common method of billing across the state and will greatly ease in the collection of delinquent taxes as well as providing City of Gaffney taxpayers longer to pay their taxes and a single point of contact for property tax questions.
The major differences for City of Gaffney property owners will be the following:
• Receive only one property tax notice for each property owned
• Both County and City property taxes are due by January 15th each year and will be paid in one payment
• All payments will be made to the Cherokee County Treasurer at:
Cherokee County Treasurer
110 Railroad Avenue
Gaffney, South Carolina 29340
