Tax Break Tracker Individual Entry

See our user guide for more explanations.

Additional notes on dislosureUnlike other counties in South Carolina, Charlestown County declines to report their FILOT abatements, saying they do not qualify under GASB 77. We know that Charlestown County has made very large abatements to Boeing, and this is some of what may have been omitted from disclosure.
