Nearly 9,000 letters mailed on behalf of theĀ Beaufort County Assessor's Office informing property owners of factors that could effect the value of their homes will be remailed at a cost of some $5,500.

The letters were accidently printed with the year "2011" instead of "2012" andĀ assessor Ed Hughes appears to be OK not determining the source of the error.
