South Carolina $700 Tax Rebate: Who’s Eligible?

Due to Hurricane Ian, the IRS decided to push back the deadline for people in South Carolina who filed for an extension.

As a result, the SCDOR moved the deadline for people who filed for an extension to February 15, 2023.

1. You must file a SC1040 for tax year 2021 by October 17, 2022 to receive the rebate by December 31, 2022.

What this means for extension filers who are eligible:

2. Those who file between October 18, 2022 and February 15, 2023 will not be eligible for a rebate until March 20, 2023.

You will receive your rebate in the same manner as you did your refund this year If you received your 2021 refund by direct deposit, the SCDOR will use the same bank account.

​​​​How you will receive your rebate​

Changes to your bank account since receiving your 2021 direct deposit refund must be reported by November 1. Email the SC5000 form to SCRebate@dor.sc.gov. 

Paper checks will be issued if: * You received your refund for 2021 via debit card or paper check. * Your 2021 refund was deposited directly to a prepaid or pay-as-you-go debit card.

* You had a balance due and did not receive a refund. * You received your 2021 refund using a tax preparer’s account.

Only one tax rebate will be issued to married couples filing their 2021 taxes as a joint return under the Individual Income Tax Act.
