For people whose tax liabilities are less than $800, their rebates will be equal to their tax liability, while filers with a tax liability equal to or over $800 will receive exactly $800, per the South Carolina Department of Revenue. The Department of Revenue has capped the highest amount that people can receive from this rebate at $800, per the state.
People who have filed their 2021 SC1040 by Oct. 17 will receive this rebate before the end of the year. Anyone who received a 2021 refund by direct deposit will receive this rebate in the same bank account. Those who file their returns after Oct. 17 have until Feb. 15, 2023, to file their returns to receive the payment, which will then arrive by March 2023.
The payment from the state can be tracked. In order to use the tracking website, people will need either their Social Security number or the Individual Taxpayer Identification number from their SC1040 form.
