 ​​​​Rebate ​eligibility ​requirements​​​​​

​You can determine if you are eligible to receive the rebate by knowing if you have ​tax liability for tax ye​ar 2021 ​and by carefully reading the requirements ​below:

Definition of Tax Liability

​When referring to the SC 2022 rebate, you are considered as having tax liability​ if you owe ​state Individual Income Tax for tax year 2021. The amount of your tax liability is determined by the amount of ​Individual ​Income Tax you owe, minus any credits.​​​

​​

You are eligible if ...

You file a 2021 state Individual Income Tax return by  February 15, 2023.
You must have filed by October 17, 2022 to receive ​​​your rebate by December 31, 2022. 

You have Individual Income Tax liability for tax year 2021.

You are a SC resident, part-year resident, or nonresident.

You are not eligible if ...

You do not file a 2021 state Individual Income Tax return by ​February 15, 2023.

​ You do ​not have Individual Income Tax​ liability​ for tax year 2021.​​​​
​​

​​​ ​​​​How to calculate your rebate amount

Rebates are based on your 2021 tax liability, up to a cap. The rebate cap – the maximum rebate amount a taxpayer can receive – is $800. If your tax liability is less than $800, your rebate will be the same amount as your tax liability. If your tax liability is over the $800 cap, you will receive a rebate for $800​.

Use the steps below to determine your tax liability and calculate your rebate​ amount​:

  1. Determine your tax liability:
    • ​​​​Look at your 2021 Individual Income Tax return (SC1040) and see if you have an amount on line 10:
      • ​If you do not have an amount, stop. You will not receive a rebate. 
      • If line 10 is $1 or more, continue.
    • Add your refundable credits found on lines 21 and 22. (This could be zero.) Now subtract those credits, if any, from line 15:​
      ​​​line 15 - (line 21 +​ line 22)​

  2. I​f the rebate amount you calculated is:
    • ​​​les​​s than $800, you will receive the amount you calculated.
    • greater than or equal to $800, you will receive $800.​
 ​

​​

 ​​​​How you will receive your rebate​

You will receive your rebate ​in much the same way you received your refund this year:

If you received your 2021 refund by direct deposit, the SCDOR will use the same bank account to issue your rebate by direct deposit.

Paper checks will be issued if:​​

  • You notified us of a change in banking information by November 1.
  • ​You received your 2021 refund by debit card or paper check.
  • You received your 2021 refund by direct deposit to a prepaid or pay-as-you-go debit card.​
  • You had a balance due and did not receive a refund.
  • You received your 2021 refund using a tax preparer’s account.

​Married couples who filed joint 2021 Individual Income Ta​x returns will receive only one rebate.​

Update your mailing address if it has changed.*

You have two options for updating your address:
*You may experience a delay receiving your rebate if you did not update your mailing address by November 1, 2022 using the SC5000.
