Form SC1040-V: Individual Income Tax Payment Voucher

Form SC1040-V, also known as the Individual Income Tax Payment Voucher, is a document used by South Carolina (SC) residents to submit payment for any balance due on their individual income tax return. It serves as a companion form to the SC1040 tax return and is specifically for those who owe taxes to the state after filing.

Who Needs Form SC1040-V?

You'll need Form SC1040-V if you filed a South Carolina individual income tax return (SC1040) and have a balance due. This means you calculated your tax liability and owe money to the state after accounting for any deductions and credits.

What are the Different Ways to Use Form SC1040-V?

Paper Filing with Payment: If you're filing a paper tax return and have a balance due, you'll need to complete Form SC1040-V, include your payment (check or money order), and mail them together to the SCDOR. Do not submit the payment voucher with your return itself.

Electronic Filing with Payment: If you file your SC1040 electronically and have a balance due, you don't need to submit a paper copy of Form SC1040-V. You can make your payment electronically through the SCDOR's MyDORWAY online portal (https://mydorway.dor.sc.gov/).

Important Points to Remember When Using Form SC1040-V:

Payment Method: The SCDOR only accepts checks or money orders for payments submitted with Form SC1040-V. Make your check payable to "SCDOR" and include your name, Social Security number (SSN), and "2024 SC1040-V" (or the relevant year) in the memo line. Do not send cash.

Electronic Filing Threshold: If you owe $15,000 or more in connection with any SCDOR return, you're required to file and pay electronically.

Deadlines: The filing deadline for South Carolina income tax returns is typically the same as the federal deadline, which is usually in mid-April. However, it's always best to check the SCDOR website for the latest information on deadlines and extensions.

Can I pay my South Carolina income tax online without using Form SC1040-V?

Yes, absolutely! If you're filing electronically, you can make your payment through the MyDORWAY online portal. You won't need to submit a paper copy of Form SC1040-V in this case.

I lost my copy of Form SC1040-V. Can I still make a payment?

Yes. You can still make a payment with a check or money order made payable to "SCDOR" and include your name, SSN, and "2024 Income Tax Payment" (or the relevant year) in the memo line. However, it's always best to keep a copy of your payment records for your reference.
