SCDOR: Deadline set for forms delayed by Hurricane Ian

  • 0

Welcome to tax season the one time each year you may actually be thinking about the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).This year, however, before you do your taxes it may be worth gauging how likely you are to face an audit.

Extension filers who were granted relief as a result of Hurricane Ian have until Feb. 15 to file their 2021 tax year individual income tax returns, according to the S.C. Department of Revenue.

That means any extension filers who have not yet filed their return must file by Feb. 15 to avoid penalties and interest. Taxpayers must also file by this date to be eligible for a state tax rebate.

The Feb. 15 deadline also applies to other returns and payments granted Hurricane Ian tax relief, including:

  • Business income tax returns originally due between Oct. 17, 2022 and Feb. 15, 2023.
  • Certain quarterly withholding returns and payments, including those originally due Oct. 31, 2022 and Jan. 31, 2023.

  • Fourth-quarter corporate and individual income tax estimated payments, originally due December 2022 and January 2023.

Tips for extension filers:

The extension is for filing your return, not for payment. If you have not yet paid your income tax balance, you may owe additional penalties and interest.

  • File electronically. It’s faster, more secure, and more accurate than filing a paper return.
  • Review available tax credits that may apply to you.
  • File on time. You may face a penalty if you file after Feb. 15.
  • Keep a copy of your tax return for your records.

Disgraced South Carolina lawyer Alex Murdaugh is about to put his fate before a small-town jury. Murdaugh's trial on two counts of murder in the June 2021 deaths of his wife and son started Monday with jury selection. The 54-year-old's life has unraveled over the past two years. He faces about 100 other criminal counts as prosecutors say he stole millions of dollars from clients, committed insurance fraud trying to stage his own death and ran a drug and money laundering ring. But Murdaugh has adamantly denied killing his wife and son, saying he found them shot to death at their home after visiting his ailing father.

The prosecution and defense are getting ready to pick the final jury of 12 people and six alternates in the murder trial of South Carolina attorney Alex Murdaugh. After the jury is picked Wednesday morning, opening statements are expected in the murder trial for Murdaugh, who is accused of the 2021 killings of his wife and son. A judge said Tuesday he will decide on a case-by-case basis outside the jury’s presence whether the jury gets to hear prosecutors present evidence of other crimes Murdaugh is accused of committing. Defense attorneys don’t want the judge to admit the evidence, contending prosecutors are trying to smear Murdaugh to bolster a weak case.

Lawmakers in at least two states that have seen recent attacks to electrical infrastructure are proposing new legislation to improve security around substations and increase the penalties for damaging utility equipment. Attacks last month in Moore County, North Carolina, knocked out power to more than 45,000 customers for several days. Those attacks, and others in Washington, Oregon, South Carolina and Nevada, have underscored the vulnerability of the nation’s far-flung electrical grid, which security experts have long warned could be a target for domestic extremists. South Carolina lawmakers have filed two related bills, and a North Carolina lawmaker is drafting legislation.
