South Carolina reminds taxpayers of online filing and payment changes
Certain return filings and corporate payments moving to dedicated site
TAX ALERT |
In recent revenue news, the South Carolina Department of Revenue (DOR) reminds taxpayers that beginning Aug. 15, 2016, business personal property (BPP) return filings and corporate tax payments are moving to MyDORWAY, a dedicated website for South Carolina tax filings, calculations and payments. Currently, MyDORWAY supports withholding taxes, sales and use tax, rental surcharges and casual or use excise taxes, among other state and local taxes.
BPP filings can no longer be submitted through the SCBOS system. BPP filings required before Aug. 15, 2016, will need to be completed using a new version of Form PT-100, otherwise those returns may be filed on the DOR’s MyDORWAY website on Aug. 15. According to the DOR, filing information will be mailed to the address on record before a taxpayer’s filing due date. The letter will contain necessary filing information, such as a new file number.
Additionally, the ePay system is no longer accepting corporate tax payments. Payments between now and Aug. 15 will require a paper form and check, and beginning on Aug. 15, may be submitted on MyDORWAY.
The DOR launched a three-year implementation of the MyDORWAY website in September 2015, accepting sales and withholding taxes at that time and further centralizing the administration of state and local taxes in subsequent roll-outs. Additional August enhancements to the website include alerts for unread notices and letters, balances due and returns that have not been filed. South Carolina taxpayers should consider whether a MyDORWAY account would improve their tax function and speak to their tax advisors with questions.
