​2D Barcode for Individual Income Tax

All tax preparation software packages that support South Carolina allow users to produce a paper return for the purpose of filing your tax return. Most of these same providers support 2D barcode filing as well as electronic filing of the South Carolina return. We recommend electronic filing, but if you choose to paper file, 2D is the best paper filing option.

Information from a 2D return is captured from a machine-readable barcode rather than being manually entered. The 2D barcode is only visible after your return has been printed. Only the information received from the 2D barcode is processed, not any hand-written changes made to your return. If you see an error or omission to your printed information, use the software to make any changes to your 2D return and re-print a new 2D return that will reflect the changes in the barcode.
