​​ Those granted relief after Hurricane Ian have less than a month to file

​​What you nee​d to know:

  • Extension filers who were granted relief as a result of Hurricane Ian have until February 15 to file their 2021 tax year Individual Income Tax returns.

  • In addition to Individual Income Tax returns, the February 15 deadline applies to Business Income Tax returns, certain quarterly Withholding returns and payments, and 4th Quarter Individual Income Tax estimated payments which were also postponed as part of the relief.

  • ​Those eligible for a state tax rebate who file by February 15 will receive their payment in March.

​The South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR) reminds taxpayers granted relief last year as a result of Hurricane Ian that the deadline for 2021 state Income Tax return extension filers is February 15, 2023.

That means any extension filers who have not yet filed their return must file by February 15 to avoid penalties and interest. Taxpayers must also file by this date to be eligible for a state tax rebate.

This deadline is only for 2021 Individual Income Tax returns, not 2022 returns, which are due April 18, 2023.

The February 15 deadline also applies to other returns and payments granted Hurricane Ian tax relief, including:

  • Business Income Tax returns originally due between October 17, 2022 and February 15, 2023
  • Certain quarterly Withholding returns and payments, including those originally due October 31, 2022 and January 31, 2023
  • Fourth quarter Corporate and Individual Income Tax estimated payments, originally due December 2022 and January 2023.

Tips for extension filers:

  • The extension is for filing your return, not for payment. If you have not yet paid your Income Tax balance, you may owe additional penalties and interest.
  • File electronically. It's faster, more secure, and more accurate than filing a paper return.
  • Review available tax credits that may apply to you.
  • File on time. You may face a penalty if you file after February 15.
  • Keep a copy of your tax return for your records.

Rebate reminders:

  • You must file a South Carolina Individual Income Tax return for tax year 2021 by February 15, 2023 to be eligible for a rebate.
  • The SCDOR needs your updated mailing address if it has changed since you last filed your SC Individual Income Tax Return. You have two options for updating your address:
  • Log in to MyDORWAY and click the More tab. Then, under Names and Addresses, click Manage Names & Addresses.
  • If you don't have a MyDORWAY account, download the SC8822I and email the completed form to Tax​
  • All rebates will be issued in March 2023. This wave of rebates is only for eligible taxpayers who did not receive a rebate last year.
