South Carolina Fillable Forms Overview:
- When you click the SC Fillable Forms link, you will be prompted to create a user ID and password.
- South Carolina Fillable Forms will only accurately file your return if you provide complete and accurate information AND follow the directions provided by the software.
- Fillable Forms will perform math calculations if you click the "Do the Math" button, but offers limited edits on the data you submit.
- You may want to work out your South Carolina return on paper BEFORE accessing South Carolina Fillable Forms so you will already have all of your W2s and other necessary forms together.
- Line 1 of the SC1040 requires you to enter your federal taxable income. You will need your completed federal return to provide that information.
- You can mail your completed form to the SCDOR OR submit the return electronically using this product. If you choose to submit your return electronically, you will be prompted to provide W2 and/or 1099 information. DO NOT mail your return to the SCDOR if you already submitted electronically, as it could delay your refund. If you choose to print and mail your return DO NOT make any marks on the paper return other than signing the return in the appropriate space.
