​​​​​​​​​Protect your refund!
The South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR) and the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs (SCDCA) ​have tips for preventing tax fraud and protecting your identity.


The SCDOR sends hundreds of thousands of notices to taxpayers each year. If you receive a notice, read it carefully as soon as possible. Every notice contains useful information about what you need to know and what you need to do. Most issues can be resolved quickly if you follow the instructions on your notice. If you have questions, we are here to help.

 Common reasons the SCDOR may send you a notice:

  • You have a balance due.
  • You are due a larger or smaller refund.
  • We have a question about your return or need additional information or documents.
  • We need to verify your identity. We may ask you to send us additional documents or complete either the Identity Verification Quiz or Individual Code Verification on MyDORWAY.
  • We changed your return.

​​​ ​Protect yourself from potential scams!
If you believe the notice you received did not really come from the SCDOR, please call 1-844-898-8542 immediately.
