Other Helpful Payment Plan Information
  • Tax liens are typically filed even if you set up a Payment Agreement with SC-DOR.

REDUCE YOUR SC-DOR TAX DEBT


South Carolina does not have an Offer in Compromise program available to settle a tax liability for a lesser amount.

Penalty Relief


It’s also very difficult to get penalties removed.  The state doesn’t typically consider financial hardship as a reason for penalty relief.  With that said, you can request penalty relief using the South Carolina Penalty Waiver Request form.  

TAX RESOLUTION CASE EXAMPLES


The South Carolina Department of Revenue has some flexibility when it comes to back tax liabilities.  Each case varies based on factors such as your compliance history, type of tax owed and total amount past due.  Here are some case examples in your state negotiated by M&M.
