File your Individual Income Tax return using one of the electronic filing methods and pay your balance due by Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW). Automatic withdrawal from your checking or savings account is available on the payment date you select. However, you must pay your balance due in full by May 1, to avoid paying penalties and interest. See Electronic Filing Incentive below. Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) is available for SC1040ES (Declaration of Estimated Tax for Individuals) and SC4868 (Extension of Time to File). EFW is a FREE service to taxpayers.
Taxpayers may submit their Individual Income Tax Payment Voucher (SC1040-V) electronically. Taxpayers who file electronically can submit the voucher and payment by going to www.sctax.org and clicking on DORePay. Payment by credit card (MasterCard or VISA) or EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal) will be accepted.
Taxpayers using any Electronic Filing option have until May 1, to pay the balance due without penalty or interest. Failure to file and pay the balance due by May 1, will result in penalties and interest from April 15, until the return is filed and the tax is paid. THIS INCENTIVE DOES NOT APPLY TO PAPER RETURNS. This incentive will not extend the time for amending your return to claim a refund. If the original return is received after April 15, without a valid extension, you will have until April 15, to amend your return to claim a refund.NOTE: THIS SPECIAL INCENTIVE APPLIES ONLY TO THE FILING OF YOUR SOUTH CAROLINA INCOME TAX RETURN BY NON-PAPER METHODS.
