Request a Certificate of Compliance
Certificate of Tax Compliance Requests (Form C-268) may be submitted to the SCDOR via fax, email, or mail. Please note that electing to submit a request via mail could prolong the process. A request submitted by email must contain Form C-268. A $60 fee is required in order for the Certificate of Tax Compliance to be issued. We cannot accept electronic payments. Please include in the memo section of the payment instrument the name of the entity along with the EIN number. The $60 payment must be mailed to:
SCDOR Certificate of Tax Compliance
Attention: Jean Funches
P.O. Box 125
Columbia, SC 29214
If after research and review the taxpayer is found not to be in compliance, a secure email (if an email address is provided by the taxpayer), fax, or letter will be sent to the taxpayer notifying them that they are not in compliance. A detailed list of the tax types and periods that are not in compliance and what must be done to bring the taxpayer into compliance will be included in that notification.
The taxpayer will be given 30 days from the notification date to become compliant. If the taxpayer is unable to complete the items in the allotted time, they must contact the Compliance Section prior to the end of the 30 days to request an extension.
If the taxpayer is found to be in compliance, the Certificate of Tax Compliance should be issued within 48 hours of the request. The Certificate of Tax Compliance can be sent by secure email to the party making the request.
