South Carolina taxpayers impacted by the severe storms and flooding that began October 1, 2015 may qualify for tax relief from the South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR).
The IRS has provided special filing and payment relief to victims of flooding in certain counties in South Carolina (IR 2015-112, dated October 7, 2015). The tax relief postpones various tax filing and payment deadlines that occurred starting on October 1, 2015. As a result, affected individuals and businesses will have until February 16, 2016 to file these returns and pay any taxes due. This includes the October 15, 2015 deadline for those who received an extension to file their 2014 return and the deadline for making quarterly estimated payments.
The IRS filing and payment relief applies to the following counties identified by the President’s declaration as a federal disaster area:
The SCDOR will provide the same relief to the taxes that it administers. An Information Letter
outlining additional details will be published by the SCDOR later this week. View the latest on tax relief for victims of the South Carolina flooding here
