Additional Information

You may call the Delinquent Tax Department at Barnwell County and make arrangements to pay the Delinquent taxes online. Barnwell County will return any tax payment made for current taxes if there are prior year's taxes outstanding. Any convenience fee paid will NOT be refunded. Please examine all of the information to determine if this method of payment suits your needs. The digital receipt that you print after making your payment is a confirmation of your payment, but this receipt is not acceptable at the DMV. You will be mailed an official tax receipt within three business days of your payment.
