South Carolina’s 2021 legislative session is here. Important debate and decisions on tax legislation will be underway at the State House. That means SCACPA’s “The View from the Dome” blog posts once again are here to keep members up-to-date on developments.

This valuable Member Benefit is produced in conjunction with our lobbying partners at Copper Dome Strategies. “The View from the Dome” is one more way that shows SCACPA is the only organization that looks out for the interests of CPAs and the accounting profession in South Carolina.

The first session of the 124rd General Assembly convened Tuesday, Jan. 12, and it is the first year of our two-year legislative session. Let “The View from the Dome” be your weekly guide every Friday.

We know many of you will have little time with Tax Season to seek out legislative news that will be important to you. But “The View from the Dome” is an important part of SCACPA Advocacy that’s there when you need it.

Legislation to conform South Carolina’s tax code to the federal IRS code will once again be required. The potential sale of state-owned utility Santee Cooper will again be front and center for debate.

Get started with our 2021 Legislative Session “Pre-View from the Dome” and a review of pre-filed tax legislation of interest.

Look for “The View from the Dome” when you’re ready for the latest development from the State House, brought to you by SCACAP’s award-winning communications team all the way through the Sine Die adjournment scheduled for May 14.


Each week’s bulletin will be posted on the SCACPA Blog on Friday afternoon. You’ll find links to it in the following days on our social media.

You’ll also find a link to it when you click on this banner in the “Current Assets” e-newsletter in your inbox every Thursday morning.

(Not seeing the “Current Assets” e-newsletter every Thursday morning? If it’s not in your spam folder, contact to make sure we have your correct email address on file.)


Every blog post starts with an overview of the week’s biggest developments.

We then break down by category what you need to know, starting with Tax Developments and the Budget, followed by other areas affected by tax legislation.

We include direct links to the bills under discussion so you can read the fine print yourself. You’ll also find out the names of the legislators behind these bills.

Finally, the SCACPA Advocacy Team wants to hear from you. Send us your comments, ideas or challenges, and let us know which issues are most important to you at
