The South Carolina Department of Revenue is committed to the fair administration of South Carolina tax laws. This means that every taxpayer should pay no more and no less than they owe the State of South Carolina. We recognize that most taxpayers are honest and seek to pay their fair share for the services they receive. Unfortunately, a few individuals and businesses intentionally do not comply with state tax laws.
This is fraud
and it's illegal.
The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is the South Carolina Department of Revenue's primary criminal tax enforcement unit. Its function is to review alleged violations to the tax laws, to investigate those violations, and to recommend criminal prosecutions as warranted. In carrying out its role to identify willful noncompliance with the state's tax laws,
the division relies on referrals from other divisions, as well as information from other governmental agencies and the public.
