Extensions for Filing SC Individual Taxes

Taxpayers needing more time to file their South Carolina Individual Income Tax Return may request an extension online with SCnetFile or by paper with Form SC4868. SCnetFile offers a quick, easy, and secure way to file a South Carolina Request for Extension of Time to File.

Note: this is an extension of time to file, not an extension of time to pay. This extension applies to a South Carolina return only, not a federal return.


The SCDOR has released a new series of Corporate Tax tutorials explaining the basics of filing, payment, and administrative requirements for Corporate taxes in South Carolina. The basic level tutorials are available now. More advanced tutorials geared toward tax preparers will be added soon.
