Is South Carolina a Homestead Exemption State? Who qualifies?

While you are considering purchasing Greeville SC real estate, keep in mind that South Carolina is a homestead exemption state, and this program exempts the first $50,000.00 of the value of your home from all property taxes, and you may apply to the County Auditor's Office for the Homestead Exemption discount.

Who is Eligible?

To qualify for the Homestead Exemption, statements 1,2 and 3 must be true.  

    1. You hold complete fee simple title to your primary legal residence or life estate to your primary legal residence or you are the beneficiary of a trust that holds title to your primary legal residence. 

    2. As of December 31 preceding the tax year of the exemption, you were a legal resident of South Carolina for one calendar year 

    3. As of December 31 preceding the tax year of the exemption, you must be one of the following: 

                        a. 65 years of age, or 

                        b. declared totally and permanently disabled by a state or federal agency                                  having the authority to make such a declaration, or 

                        c. legally blind as certified by a licensed ophthalmologist. 


Homestead_Exemption_In_Greenville_SCThe earliest that an application can be made for the homestead exemption is on or after July 16 preceding the year that the exemption is to be claimed. Once application is accepted, you do not need to reapply again unless you move to a new home or the eligible owner dies.

Deadline for filing is the day before the tax bill would incur penalties. A failure to apply by that date is considered a waiver of the exemption for that tax year.

Documents you need to apply:

    Those 65 years or older who are applying because of their age will need their birth certificate or South Carolina Driver's License.

    Those who are applying because of disability will need documentation that certifies the disability from a federal or state agency. A person claiming to be totally and permanently disabled, but who has not been classified by one of the agencies, may apply to the state agency of Vocational Rehabilitation. 

    Those who are applying because of blindness will need documentation from an ophthalmologist who is registered with the South Carolina commission for the blind.

    Those who are the income beneficiary of a trust will also need to present a copy of the trust agreement.

Under-cabinet lighting is also an upgraded plus. The kitchen appliances all stay, including the fridge. I will note that the gas range can be converted back to electric if you so desire, it's set up for either. The kitchen floor is tile, and the laundry room was added to bring the washer and dryer from the garage to the home, which is awesome. Stackable appliance accommodations would be easy. There are three bedrooms; two bedrooms have access to the hall bath, which has been upgraded with new cabinets and a high-profile toilet. The primary bedroom is very spacious, with a walk-in closet. They have upgraded the bathroom with new counters and cabinets and installed a spacious walk-in shower. The toilet has been upgraded to a high profile. Both bathrooms have ceramic tile. Now let's take a peek outside. They installed a new sliding 3-lock system door, which leads to a covered porch. The owners recently added a tiled floor and sun shades, which convey. The back yard is beautifully landscaped and fenced. There are two very nice storage sheds a 12x12 and 12x16 that do convey with the sale. so storage is not an issue. They even have a couple of garden spots, so you can have a few tomatoes or cucumbers for summer sandwiches. Such a beautiful, happy spot. The garage is two cars and very spacious. All of the built-in cabinets do stay, and there are tons of them. There is no shortage of storage in this home. The work bench also conveys in the garage. Let me list out a few things you do not want, miss. All the windows have been replaced in the home to Champion Low E. The water heater was just upgraded to a tankless; it is in the garage; all the lighting and ceiling fans in the home have been upgraded; they added landscape lighting; and the sunbreak and handrail were added to the front porch. The garage door is new and insulated with a new smart garage door opener. The furnace was replaced in 2022, the air was replaced in 2012, and we recently added a smart thermostat. The roof is a 30-year-old architectural shingle replaced in 2010. All of the blinds remain, are custom, and are top-to-bottom solar. Entrance doors from the front and garage were also replaced. So, as you can see, this place is ready for you to call home. You cannot beat the location, shopping, and restaurant minutes to I385.
