Helping You Step-by-Step with Appeals

You have the right to appeal any disputed tax or regulatory matter that falls under the SCDOR’s jurisdiction. These disputes often involve:

  • State Taxes (including Property Taxes administered by the SCDOR)
  • Penalties
  • Denials, violations, and revocations of licenses
  • Other regulatory matters administered by the SCDOR

 YOU SHOULD NOT BEGIN THE APPEALS PROCESS IF EITHER OF THESE SITUATIONS APPLY TO YOU: 

  • You don’t dispute the findings of your notice but are unable to pay the proposed amount. Contact the number listed on your notice, or visit dor.sc.gov/payplan to learn more about Payment Plan Agreements.
  • You are appealing the seizure of your state Income Tax refund to for a debt owed to another agency, such as a hospital bill or child support payment. Contact the agency listed on the notice you received.

​​Types of Appeals

The appeal process is different depending on the issue you’re disputing. Learn more about each process by clicking through the steps below.
