South Carolina Changes Law

South Carolina has decided to become a winter spot for boaters. The tax law has been changed. It use to be that if you were in state longer than 90 days you were subject to county property tax and it was steep. Now the state has given the counties the right to extend the time period to 6 months. Horry County, the Myrtle Beach, Grand Strand area has gone with the 6 months. Now boaters can winter here with no worry. We donít have to winterize our boats, lotís of marina space and lotís of things to do. You donít burn near as much fuel getting here as heading way south. Even in winter we still have a lot of warm days. So come on down yall, and spend the winter in the Myrtle Beach area. No I am not with the chamber of commerce. I am just a boat owner that would like to see this area used as a major winter stopover.

I've read that the personal property tax on boats in SC used to be 10.5% per annum, but was reduced to ONLY 6% per annum. Is that the case, Zack? Seems pretty stiff! Where we lived in Virginia, it was 1.4% IIRC, but could vary by county. Some had no pp tax for boats, hoping to lure in more boaters to support local marinas and the marine trades.
