South Carolina's tax authority has announced that it will join a growing number of states in conforming with the federal government on the filing and payment of income tax in light of the novel coronavirus, which causes COVID-19.

The Department of Revenue said Monday that the filing and payment dates for all income tax types — individual, corporate and trust — will be moved to July 15 in conformity with the federal government. The deadline also applies to quarterly estimated payments due April 15.

Meanwhile, the tax agency also announced that residents and businesses will have until June 1 to file and pay for other tax types. These taxes include sales and use, local sales and use tax that is collected by the state tax agency, property tax that is filed with the state tax agency, withholding tax, motor fuel tax, state taxes on accommodations, and taxes on alcoholic beverages.
