Universal Citation: SC Code § 31-12-300 (2017)

(A) If a municipality authorizes by ordinance the issuance of obligations pursuant to Section 31-12-210, the auditor of the county in which the municipality is situated, immediately after adoption of the ordinance pursuant to Section 31-12-210 and upon request of the municipality, shall determine and certify:

(1) the most recently ascertained equalized assessed value of all taxable real property within the redevelopment project area, as of the date of creation of the authority pursuant to Section 31-12-200 or the date the properties were scheduled for disposal by final action of the federal government in the case of properties added after the date of creation of the authority, which value is the "initial equalized assessed value" of the property; and

(2) the total equalized assessed value of all taxable real property within the redevelopment project area as of the date of the creation of the authority pursuant to Section 31-12-200, or the date the properties were scheduled for disposal by final action of the federal government in the case of properties added after the date of creation of the authority, and certifying the amount as the "total initial equalized assessed value" of the taxable real property within the redevelopment project area. Another official required by law to ascertain the amount of the equalized assessed value of all taxable property within the district shall cooperate and assist the county auditor in making this determination.

(B)(1) After the county auditor has certified the total initial equalized assessed value of the taxable real property in the area, then in respect to every taxing district containing a redevelopment project area, the county auditor or any other official required by law to ascertain the amount of the equalized assessed value of all taxable property within the district for the purpose of computing the rate percent of tax to be extended upon taxable property within the district, shall ascertain, in every year that obligations are outstanding for redevelopment projects in the redevelopment area, the amount of value of taxable property in a project redevelopment area by including in the amount the certified total initial equalized assessed value of all taxable real property in the area instead of the equalized assessed value of all taxable real property in the area.

(2) The rate percent of tax determined must be extended to the current equalized assessed value of all property in the redevelopment project area in the same manner as the rate percent of tax is extended to all other taxable property in the taxing district. The method of extending taxes established under this section terminates when the municipality adopts an ordinance dissolving the special tax allocation fund for the redevelopment project.
