SC opens tax filing season

  • Friday, January 31, 2014

The SC Department of Revenue (SCDOR) is reminding taxpayers that the 2014 individual income tax filing season opens Friday, January 31.

In accordance with the Internal Revenue Service, SCDOR will begin to accept electronic or paper individual income tax returns this Friday.

SCDOR encourages taxpayers to file their income tax returns electronically as it is not only beneficial to the taxpayer, but to the state as well due to the efficiency in processing times. Electronic filers may receive a refund in as little as 10 days, as compared to those who file a paper return, which could take an average of three weeks to receive a refund.

Whether filing electronically, via paper, or fillable form, taxpayers have three options for receiving a tax refund: direct deposit, prepaid debit card, or paper check. Direct deposit is the preferred method by DOR.

To learn more about filing your taxes electronically, or to check on the status of your refund, visit www.sctax.org or call the individual income tax section of SCDOR at (803) 898-5000.
