“Maximum tax” sales tax workshop offered
To auto, recreational vehicle and boat dealers
The South Carolina Department of Revenue is offering a special sales and use tax seminar in Greenville this month designed to show automobile, recreational vehicle and watercraft dealership owners and employees how to collect and report the state’s “maximum sales and use tax.” The seminar is Wednesday, June 18 at the Holiday Inn, I-85 and 4295 Augusta Road.
A sales and use tax cap, or maximum tax, is applied to the sale of automobiles, motorcycles, recreational vehicles and watercraft. Dealers have certain reporting criteria other retailers may not have and Revenue department employees at the one-day seminar will explain to attendees the state’s tax laws on collecting the maximum tax and reporting it to the department.
DOR instructors will show participants how to complete the necessary tax forms and will provide information and instruction on the department’s available electronic services and show how the technology can help dealership owners and their employees save time. Instructors also will explain what to expect in a revenue department audit.
There is a non-refundable $45 registration fee which covers the costs of seminar materials, a continental breakfast and lunch. Registration is available by calling the Department of Revenue at (803) 898-5593, or by emailing TaxpayerEd@sctax.org or visiting the DOR website at /Tax+Workshops/default.htm.###
