For a new structure, the address is issued along with the building permit. In this case, contact the Georgetown County Building Department, 843-545-3116. For addressing issues concerning existing buildings, contact the GIS Department at 843-545-3071.
Note: The County does not issue addresses for vacant lots or sheds; only for habitable structures.
The Tax Assessor’s office is running a new database system and has changed the format from 04-0140 -001 to 04-0140-001-00-00 There are now no spaces or decimal points, only dashes.
Usually, this is caused by entering the suffix (street, lane, avenue, etc.). The best results are found when you enter the street and the number, for example 200 Hammock, without the suffix.
Since the information in the database is provided by the Assessor’s Office, the property owner should inform this office of any incorrect information at 843-545-3014.
