Extended tax deadline nears
October 15 is the filing deadline for those with an extension of time to file their 2011 individual income tax returns and the S.C. Department of Revenue is reminding taxpayers of their refund options. Taxpayers will receive an income tax refund prepaid debit card unless they designate on their tax return to receive a paper check or direct deposit. Only those taxpayers filing electronically or by 2D barcode have the options to directly deposit their refund. For more information on the prepaid debit card, visit www.sctax.org and click on the debit card icon.
