South Carolina Taxing Information

Appeals

You may appeal an assessment if you do so in writing and in a timely matter. You may authorize a qualified professional to represent you during the appeals process.

Collections

The Department of Revenue is responsible for notifying you of any owed tax or tax-related dues. You have a period of time upon receiving a notice from the DOR to appeal it if you disagree with its content. Failure to appeal or otherwise address a notice in the given timeframe, the state may begin enforced collection actions. Any costs associated with the collection process may be added to the total amount that you owe.

Installment Agreements

If you are unable to pay your tax bill in full, you may request an installment plan by which you can pay it off over time with scheduled payments. As the state is inclined to protect its interests, should a request be accepted, additional security measures may be taken, such as requiring a down payment or filing a lien. You will need to comply with any terms and conditions given to you, lest you incur penalties or enforced collection actions. Penalties and interest will still accrue on the unpaid portion of your debt.

Levies

Failure to address a notice from the state may result in the issuance of a levy upon your property or rights thereto. A levy enables the seizure and sale of real or personal property as a means of resolving liability. Wages and bank accounts may also be subject to levies. Notice will be given prior to seizures and sales.

License Revocation

The DOR may revoke, suspend, or deny the renewal of some licenses if you fail to adhere to tax laws.

Priority One: Stopping Aggressive Enforced Collections

Offset

The state may divert any tax-related refunds to pay off an outstanding liability.

Penalties

Failure to pay or file taxes on time may result in additions to your total liability in the form of penalties. Penalties vary in amount by the circumstances and type of tax left unaddressed.

Power of Attorney

You may authorize a qualified agent to represent you before the Department of Revenue. To do so, you must complete and submit the appropriate documentation.

Tax Lien

Failure to address a tax debt may result in the filing of a lien against your property. Liens restrict transactions involving the associated property, and due to their nature as a public record can harm credit.
