COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina state taxes are now due on July 15, 2020. 

RELATED: Income tax filing deadline moved from April 15 to July 15

The South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR) says that, " In response to the challenges of COVID-19 and in accordance with Executive Order 2020-12 , the South Carolina Department of Revenue is moving the due date for Income Tax returns and payments originally due April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020."

There are two different due dates for the tax relief:

  • Other tax returns and payments originally due April 1 – June 1 will now be due June 1, 2020

This filing and payment relief is applied to all Income Tax taxpayers automatically; you do not need to file any additional forms or call the SCDOR to qualify. The SCDOR encourages individual taxpayers to use the electronic filing options available at dor.sc.gov/iit-filing.

"We are hopeful that pushing the Income Tax filing and payment deadline to July 15 will provide South Carolinians some peace of mind during this uncertain time," said SCDOR Director Hartley Powell.
