From KPMG TaxWatch
The South Carolina Department of Revenue has issued Revenue Procedure #16-1, which outlines a new optional, streamlined method of reporting federal changes to South Carolina. Currently, taxpayers must file amended South Carolina returns reporting any federal adjustments within 180 days after a final determination is issued by the IRS. Revenue Procedure #16-1 includes an approved sample worksheet for reporting changes under the streamlined reporting method. However, a taxpayer-created spreadsheet will be acceptable, provided that all information on the approved sample reporting format is reflected. Taxpayers using the optional method can submit their adjustments to the Department of Revenue by email or regular mail. Note that this optional reporting method is available only to report federal tax changes made by the IRS. For all other adjustments, taxpayers must file amended returns. The effective date of Revenue Procedure #16-1 is for federal tax adjustments reported to the Department on or after November 1, 2016. Please contact Jeana Parker at 919-664-7143 with questions.
