SC DOR to taxpayers: Use electronic filing

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) - The state Department of Revenue is advising taxpayers to file their taxes electronically.

A release from the revenue office says electronic filing is beneficial to taxpayers because returns are evaluated in short times, which usually means a refund in as little as 10 days.

"With over 1.2 million income tax returns processed so far in 2013, 85% of individuals have chosen to do so electronically. It is important to DOR that every taxpayer feels confident in filing a tax return with the state and continue to utilize the benefits of filing electronically," stated DOR Director Bill Blume.

The department recommended using Free File Alliance.

The 2013 filing season is the first time taxpayers have collectively filed their taxes since the DOR's security breach last year that exposed 3.6 million users' personal information.

The state has been offering credit monitoring service to people who sign up through Experian.

State officials have said that new security measures are in place to prevent future breaches.
