South Carolina Tax Amendment SC1040 and Schedule AMD

If you need to change or amend an accepted South Carolina State Income Tax Return for the current or previous Tax Year, you need to complete Form SC1040 and Schedule AMD.  Form SC1040 and Schedule AMD is a Form used for the Tax Amendment. You can prepare a 2021 South Carolina Tax Amendment on eFile.com, however you cannot submit it electronically. In comparison, the IRS requires a different Form - Form 1040X - to amend an IRS return (do not use Form 1040 for an IRS Amendment). 

The IRS might send you a notification to change an error on your Return, or you might have discovered an error. If you or the IRS amended or changed one of your IRS Tax Return(s), the IRS will report this to the South Carolina Tax Agency, thus you should file a South Carolina Amendment within one year.
