This series was a data-driven investigation of South Carolina's methods for taxing vehicles, which are subject to property tax in the state. The property tax paid by a family with several vehicles can be more than the property tax they pay for their house, and the vehicle taxes are an important source of revenue for schools. The investigation found multiple flaws and inequities in the state's methods for taxing vehicles, starting with auto value guides the state purchases but refuses to disclose.
