The South Carolina Department of Revenue announced on Tuesday that it will work on a case-by-case basis to waive any penalties assessed for taxpayers who cannot meet state filing or payment requirements because of Hurricane Florence.
For state tax relief, the DOR advises that taxpayers should first submit completed tax returns and/or payments. If taxpayers receive a notice with penalties due after they file, they may then request a penalty waiver.
The two waiver methods are:
- Submit a request using the DOR’s MyDORWAY tax portal. For instructions, visit dor.sc.gov/DisasterRelief.
- Complete Form C-530 (or write a letter that includes the information requested on Form C-530) and submit to the SCDOR by emailing to email@example.com or mailing to South Carolina Department of Revenue, Disaster Tax Relief, PO Box 125, Columbia, SC 29214-0802.
The DOR advises that requests made through MyDORWAY will be the fastest way for the request to be processed.
The relief does not apply to current collection matters, including payments due during the relief period under any payment plan previously entered into with the SC DOR.
