South Carolina residents have 11 days left to file their 2021 taxes and receive a rebate of up to $800.
The tax rebate, which will be issued to recipients in March, is available to all South Carolina residents who file their 2021 taxes by Feb. 15, according to the state’s Department of Revenue.
The size of the rebate that applicants receive will depend on their tax liability, which the department defines as the amount of state income tax that a South Carolina resident owes for the 2021 tax year. If a resident’s tax liability is less than $800, the rebate amount will be equal to the tax liability. Anyone whose tax liability is greater than $800 will receive $800.
The amount of money that residents receive may not be as high as their tax liability if they have an outstanding individual income tax bill with the department. This outstanding amount will be subtracted from the rebate amount that a recipient would receive.
The previous filing deadline set by the department for this rebate was Oct. 17, 2022. Those who filed their 2021 taxes by then received their rebate before the end of last year.
A rebate tracker is available online for recipients to check the status of their payments. To use this tracker, recipients will need either their Social Security number or their individual tax identification number, as well as their line 10 from their 2021 SC1040.
