Charleston County Councilwoman Anna Johnson’s April 24 Round Table Meeting: Heirs Property Preservation and Property Tax Savings and Payments

Anna Johnson

Charleston County Councilwoman Anna B. Johnson of District 8 will hold her monthly round table discussion on Wednesday, April 24. The meetings normally are held at 12:30 p.m.on the fourth Wednesday of every month at the John’s Island Regional Library located at 3531 Maybank Highway on Johns Island. 

Our guest speakers this month:

  • Hope Watson, Staff Attorney for the Center of Heirs Property Preservation – This non-profit organization protects heirs’ property and promotes its sustainable use to provide increased economic benefit to historically under-served families. They offer legal education and direct legal services to help families reach agreement, clear title to family land and probate estates as well as providing one-hour free, legal consultation and Free Simple Wills Clinics.   
  • Charleston County Treasurer Mary Tinkler will be there to discuss options on how to pay your taxes by using the Advance Installment Plan
  • Charleston County Auditor Peter Tecklenburg or his staff member will discuss what tax saving potential is available to you by applying for exemptions. His office has just launched a Homestead Exemption Campaign so citizens who are eligible can enroll in the program.

“My purpose for holding these monthly meetings is to share information about County-related issues and to listen to citizens’ concerns,” Johnson said. “Each month, different speakers are invited to address topics of interest as expressed by the public.”
