Tax Filing Deadline Almost Here – How to File an Extension

April 10, 2024

Out of time to file your return? It’s easy to request an extension!

​​What you nee​d to know:

  • If you owe taxes, the fastest and easiest way to request an extension is through MyDORWAY, our free online tax portal.
  • An extension extends the deadline to file your Individual Income Tax return but not to pay taxes. Pay what you owe by April 15.
  • If you don’t owe additional taxes and are requesting an extension from the IRS, you do not need to request an extension from SCDOR.

​Last year, more than 60,000 taxpayers requested an extension to file their South Carolina Individual Income Tax returns.​

There are a variety of reasons you may need to request an extension. Perhaps you are waiting on necessary documents or receipts or experienced an unexpected emergency.
