COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The South Carolina Department of Revenue says it will honor the same deadline as the Internal Revenue Service for filing of individual income taxes.
The normal date, April 15, falls on a Sunday and Emancipation Day, which is honored only in Washington, D.C., is honored on Monday, April 16. The official filing deadline will move to the next business day which is Tuesday, April 17.
The South Carolina forms will still say April 15, but the deadline will be April 17. The deadline applies to any income tax return or payment normally due on April 15. It also applies to the deadline for requesting a tax-filing extension.
South Carolina taxpayers who file and pay electronically have until May 1 to do so without penalty or interest being assessed. The May 1 deadline does not apply to federal returns or to SC taxpayers who file paper returns.
