Pickens County Hasn't Raised Taxes In 11 Years?

From a recent Greenville News article about Dacusville candidate (District 6) Carl Hudson not facing any opposition:

"He said he doesn’t like tax increases, but he wouldn’t make any pledges not to raise taxes if necessary.

“I would not be in favor. However, I would never say never,” he said. “You can only kick that not-raising-taxes can so far down the line.”

Pickens County hasn't had a tax increase in 11 years.

“A lot of people may not be against a tax increase if they can see where it benefits,” he said. “But if they go by third-party information and this is what somebody told me on the street, they may not be making a decision on facts.”"

Pickens COUNTY hasn't had a raise in PROPERTY taxes in 11 years.

However, they have significantly raised fees, add a 1¢ sales tax and rejiggered a lot from reassessment- especially the 2010 reassessment where they used pre 2008 housing bubble figures.

They also didn't take a more active role against the school district raising taxes by 150+ mils
