Those wanting the SC tax rebate this year still must file by October 17
The IRS postponed the federal Individual Income Tax extension deadline to February 15, 2023, for extension filers in South Carolina due to the effects of Hurricane Ian. The South Carolina Department of Revenue followed suit, extending their deadline for extension filing to February 15, as well. However, if South Carolina taxpayers want to receive the upcoming state tax rebate this year, they must still file the extension return for 2021 by October 17. Those who wait until after October 17 to file their Individual Income Tax return will not receive a rebate until March 2023.
Those who have filed a 2021 income tax return in South Carolina by October 17 will be eligible to receive the rebate before the end of this year. Rebates will be issued the same way you received your 2021 Income Tax refund. If you changed your banking information or mailing address since filing income taxes, use the SC5000 form at dor.sc.gov to get the information changed. Download, complete, and sign the form and email it to SCRebate@dor.sc.gov. The form is due by November 1. The rebate amount will be calculated at the beginning of November, but the maximum amount expected to be received is $700.
