Consolidated Sales Tax Returns
If you file South Carolina Sales Tax Returns for two or more locations, consider using our Consolidated Sales Tax Return option to quickly and easily file online. In one file, you can report the information normally submitted on the State Sales and Use Tax Return (ST-3) and Schedule for Local Taxes (ST-389), for all of your locations.
You must apply before you can use this option. After approval, you will receive access to the Consolidated Sales Tax Return on your MyDORWAY account. Then, you'll submit your monthly returns using the prefilled .xlsx file provided on MyDORWAY.
