​South Carolina's Top Delinquent Taxpayers

Formerly SCDOR's Debtor's Corner

We are committed to the fair administration of tax laws. When everyone pays their fair share, South Carolina wins. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. When individuals and businesses knowingly avoid paying their fair share by refusing to comply with tax laws, the tax burden increases for everyone else. 

To support transparency, fairness, and compliance, we publish the names and debt amounts of the Top 250 Delinquent Individuals and Top 250 Delinquent Businesses quarterly. We are dedicated to holding these delinquent taxpayers accountable when they knowingly do the wrong thing and have not taken the corrective steps we’ve asked them to make.

FAQs

How does someone end up on this list?
Long before their name is published, we reach out to these individuals and businesses to try to resolve these debts. We’ve sent letters, made calls, or attempted personal contact multiple times with no resolution. At this point, a tax lien has been filed against everyone on this list, making these debts public information.

How often is the list updated?
An updated list is published quarterly. The current amount of tax, penalty, and interest due may differ from the amount listed if partial payments have been made or additional penalty and interest have accrued. Since the last update, some of these delinquent taxpayers may have resolved their debts. Those taxpayers will be removed from the list at the next update. 

Who’s excluded from this list?
Individuals and businesses who have filed for bankruptcy or who have made payment agreements with us are not included on this list. Any debt in our GEAR or Setoff Debt programs is also excluded.
