ADVOCATE
The Post and Courier published an article quoting SCACPA CEO Chris Jenkins in its edition of Sunday, April 8, that considers issues that may arise if SC taxpayers have to maintain two separate sets of book for Federal and State income tax obligations. (“S.C. Taxpayers Encouraged to File for Extension Amid Confusion over State and Federal Tax Codes”)

The article closes with Jenkins encouraging state legislators to enact a law that simply conforms to the Federal code and delay their debates on SC tax reform for the future.
