South Carolina has one of the lowest per capita tax rates in the country, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. State lawmakers, political leaders and local officials are dedicated to ensuring that the Palmetto State’s tax structure remains competitive and attractive to individuals, manufacturers and small businesses considering our state as their new home. The following state and local taxes generally affect our residents.
South Carolina income tax structure follows federal income tax laws, allowing many of the same adjustments, exemptions and deductions with only a few modifications. In fact, the starting point for calculating your state tax liability is your federal taxable income. SC individual income tax rate starts at 2.5% of taxable income, graduating to a maximum of 7% on taxable income exceeding $12,650. The individual income tax brackets are adjusted annually to help offset inflation.
