Child tax credit refund not subject to S.C. taxes
South Carolinians who will in the next few weeks receive an advance child care credit income tax refund from the federal government will be happy to know they do not have to report the refund as taxable income on their 2003 state income tax return. Federal income tax refunds are not taxable in South Carolina.
The U.S. Treasury Department will begin mailing the $400-per-child tax refunds later this month. For information on the advance child care tax credit, go to the Internal Revenue Service web site at www.irs.gov, or call 1-800-829-1040.
