Have I established nexus in South Carolina if I have employees temporarily working in South Carolina due to COVID-19?
The SCDOR will not use changes solely in an employee’s temporary work location due to the remote work requirements arising from, or during, the COVID-19 relief period (March 13, 2020 – June 30, 2022) as a basis for establishing nexus (including for Public Law 86-272 purposes) or altering apportionment of income.

Will I need to pay taxes on the Economic Impact Payment I received from the IRS?
The IRS is issuing federal Economic Impact Payments, sometimes referred to as stimulus payments, as authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). For South Carolina Income Tax purposes, the Economic Impact Payment is not taxable. Learn more in Information Letter 20-13.
The SCDOR is not responsible for and cannot provide assistance related to these payments. Learn more about Economic Impact Payments and federal tax relief at irs.gov/coronavirus.
