In 2012, tax data at the SC Department of Revenue was compromised due to a security breach. Immediately upon discovery of the breach, the SC Department of Revenue implemented new technologies and processes to correct the security issues.

South Carolina taxpayers may be eligible for state-provided, comprehensive credit and non-credit identity protection from industry leader, CSID!
