Dorchester County is currently accepting applications for the Senior Citizens Tax Work-Off Program through February 23, 2023. The Senior Citizen Tax Work-Off Program permits senior citizens the opportunity to trade valuable time and needed skills for government services in exchange for compensation equal to their County property tax obligations. Those 60 years old (or older), that own property (in their name) in Dorchester County and reside at said property are eligible to apply.
Senior citizens are compensated at minimum wage (currently $7.25 per hour) for the sum equal to that portion of their property tax bill designated for County Operating, County Debt and Capital Improvements. Participants will be placed in various departments throughout the County and receive a check after they complete the requisite number of hours calculated.
For those interested, please visit Dorchester County’s website to apply.
Applications must be sent to Karen Taylor, Dorchester County Business Services, Financial Services Division, by February 23, 2023. Applications received after this date will not be eligible. Please be sure to include a copy of the Property Tax Bill and Driver’s License or other photo identification as proof of residency.
Applications may be mailed, emailed, or dropped off at the address below:
Mail: 201 Johnston Street, St. George, SC 29477
Applications may also be picked up from the Financial Services Division on the second floor of the Kenneth F. Waggoner Building at 201 Johnston Street in St. George or from the Dorchester County Council/Administrator’s Office located in the Human Services Building at 500 North Main Street in Summerville.
