Residents seeking copies of their tax bills and other information can skip the trip to the County Administration Building.
Real estate, vehicle, business and personal property tax information is available online by making just three clicks and entering some basic data. Residents are encouraged to access their tax information by visiting rcgov.us, clicking “Online Payments” at the top of the gray menu box, clicking the tax payments link (the first link listed) then clicking the “Real Estate” button.
County staff is happy to provide tax information to residents at the County Administration Building, though the in-person process requires residents to first wait in line for a tax map number at the Assessor’s Office, then wait in line at the Treasurer’s Office for a copy of the actual tax bill.
“Folks wishing to file their 2017 income taxes can make the process easier and more convenient for themselves by securely looking up the information on the Richland County website anytime they want,” said Assessor Liz McDonald. “That sure beats having to wait in different lines at the Administration Building for the same information.”
Residents can make property value inquiries, look up tax map numbers and more on the Assessor’s Office page at rcgov.us.
Other payments available online include family court, central traffic court, hospitality tax, water and sewer payments, business licenses and more.
