​​Automatic calculations reduce the chance of errors​.
​Systematic checkpoints ensure your return is complete before your return can be submitted.
​Filing online is the fastest and easiest way to complete your return​, which means we can start processing it faster.
​If you're expecting a refund, choose direct deposit! It's the fastest, easiest, most secure way to receive your refund.
​File with FRE​E tax filing software

​​

You may qualify to file your federal and state return with FREE tax filing software​ if ​​you ​​made $73,000 or less in 2022.

 File by paper

It's important to know that filing by paper increases your chances of errors and paper returns take longer for us to process, which may delay any refund you may receive.

Options for paying your Income Tax bill when filing by paper:

We ​​recommend MyDORWAY​​ for the easiest and safest way to pay your Income Tax bill online ​using a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover) or from your checking or savings account.​
​Drafting your payment from your bank account is easier and faster than mailing in a paper check. Skip the post office, avoid getting your check lost in the mail, and simply check the ACH Debit box on line 36 and enter your banking information on line 37 of the SC​1040.
​To pay by paper check, mail the check to the address on the form, letter, or notice related to your payment, and please note:
  • ​The SCDOR only accepts checks drawn from a United States bank.
  • Your check may be converted to a debit (ACH) transaction which will process your payment faster from your bank account, and your payment will show as an electronic payment on your bank statement (you will not see a scanned image of your check).​​

 ​Expecting a refund?

If you are expecting a refund, you can choose one of three options for receiving your refund: direct deposit, debit card, or paper check

We recommend choosing direct deposit. It’s the fastest, easiest, most secure way to receive your refund. As soon as we’ve processed your return, your refund will be deposited into your bank account. You don’t have to wait for paper check printing, worry about your check or card getting lost in the mail, or take the time to deposit your check.
