If your home of record is not South Carolina, you do not have to pay personal property taxes while permanently stationed in this state.
In order for your mobile home to qualify, it must be your primary residence. It must also be registered and titled in the service member’s name to qualify for 100% exemption (if joint ownership is not with a spouse 50% of the exemption will apply).
This exemption does not include county taxes on real property. To obtain the exemption, you can submit your latest Leave and Earnings Statement and photocopy of current military ID to the Auditor’s office. You can mail, fax or hand-deliver these documents to the Auditor’s Office to receive the exemption. This exemption is valid for one year, and you will need to reapply every year.
