South Carolina Individual Income Tax Booklets Mass Mailing Discontinued
In an effort to go green, The South Carolina Department of Revenue will discontinue the mass mailing of the Individual Income Tax booklet directly to taxpayers. The decision to discontinue this service is due to the decreased use of this booklet, our efforts to cut government spending, as well as our commitment to the environment. Of the 2.4 million taxpayers, this effort will affect less than 10 percent with a cost savings to the state of an estimated $271,000. SCDOR encourages taxpayers to electronically file instead of mailing a paper tax return.
There are many advantages to electronically filing your tax return such as secure online transmission, quick confirmation of receipt of your return, fast refund with direct deposit and many more. South Carolina 2009 Individual Income Tax Forms and Instructions can be accessed one of several ways including online by visiting www.sctax.org/Forms+and+Instructions/default.htm ; by calling Fax-on-Demand at 1-800- 768-3676; or, by calling 803-898-5320 to request to receive a booklet via US mail. .

If you do not qualify for any of the Free File options please visit the Electronic Services link for reduced cost offers.
