For a long time, filing a sales tax return in the Palmetto State was a fairly straightforward, if time consuming, process. Even though this destination-based state requires that sellers break out the amount of sales tax collected by locality, the old online filing method only required you to figure this out on a county-by county-basis.
Starting this month, South Carolina updated their online filing system to conform to form ST-389 which requires that filers break out sales tax collected in South Carolina by not just county, but my city and local tax. (If you filed by paper, you may have already seen this.) Talk about a nightmare! But don’t fret, TaxJar has your back. With our new report you’ll be putting a lid on South Carolina sales tax in no time.

Important Notes about the New South Carolina Sales Tax Report
Three major things to know:
1.) This report now includes city taxes and a breakdown of other local taxes you’ve collected.
2.) You may see a county on this report more than once, under a different header. This is because some counties have multiple taxes. Ex: Richland County has transportation taxes and a local option tax.
3.) As you can see from the screenshot, this form is new and we appreciate your feedback on it! Let us know if you run into any trouble by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
