Inter-Office Departments

  • Appraisal Department - The Assessor’s Office Appraisal Staff consists of eleven residential appraisers and two commercial appraisers, all of whom are under the supervision of the Chief Appraiser. Five of the appraisers on staff have obtained their State Certified Residential License (CR) designation, and one has earned a State Certified General License (CG) designation, which is the highest level one can be licensed through the SC Real Estate Board. Eight of the appraisers on staff have worked for the Assessor’s Office for five or more years.

    Currently, the Appraisal Staff is going door-to-door reviewing parcels of property in Anderson County to verify accuracy of the files for the 2001 reappraisal. This is an ongoing process with Anderson County, since it contains approximately 90,144 parcels in addition to 15,924 mobile homes, all of which require on-site inspection. In the Spring of 2000, door-to-door review will be postponed in order to measure and appraise all of the new construction that was completed in 1999. All properties that were split, subdivided, or combined during the previous year must also be reviewed at this time.

    All appraisers drive a vehicle with an Anderson County seal, and each of them have picture identification so the public will not be alarmed when appraisers perform on-site inspections.

    In addition to the job appraisers perform daily, they have been called on to assess damages incurred during natural disasters. In such instances, the appraisers report to the Emergency Preparedness Division an estimate of insured and uninsured property damages to see if there is a need for federal aid.

    All Appraisers are associate members of the South Carolina Association of Assessing Officers.

  • Data Processing Department Data Processing’s goal is to accurately maintain and update appraisal and property owner information on a day to day basis, while also providing courteous customer service to the public. Data Processing also continues to coordinate with the Department of Revenue and other tax offices to equitably assess property for tax purposes.
  • Mapping Department The Mapping Department is working closely with the digital mapping company in order to check the new mapping system for accuracy to ensure a high quality GIS base for the County. Mappers will use Arc View and Arc Info so they will be able to update the new mapping system when the time comes.

    All mappers are associate members of the South Carolina Association of Assessing Officers.
