State of South Carolina Offer in Compromise
There is no Offer in Compromise at the South Carolina Department of Revenue.It appears to have existed in 2001, but doesn’t seem to be around today. If it is, the OIC is a settlement option in name only and doesn’t appear to be a option to resolve your back taxes.
Typically, we hear from taxpayers that fell behind with their tax responsibilities due to a financial setback. Although the Department will consider removing penalties, financial hardship is typically not an acceptable reason.You will need to prove that the circumstances surrounding the lack of compliance were due to Reasonable Cause. The burden of proof will be on you, so provide as much backup documentation as possible with your request.
