In an effort to ensure that revenue collected as a result of the two percent (2%) accommodations tax are identified and distributed appropriately, the South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR) is requesting your assistance.
The SCDOR has created an Accommodations Tax Fact Sheet (please see attachment).
The information contained in this document is intended only to provide general information related to sales tax imposed on accommodations.
The fact sheet answers the following questions:
- Do you have to register with the Department of Revenue to pay the statewide sales tax on accommodations?
- How do I obtain a retail license?
- What is the cost of a retail license (for accommodations) and how long is it valid? Do I need to renew it every year?
- If a person charges for renting a room or for otherwise furnishing sleeping accommodations, would the charge be subject to the state sales tax and what is the tax rate?
- Are there any charges for accommodations that are not subject to sales tax?
- How do you report and pay tax electronically?
- What form or forms do you use to report and pay sales tax on accommodations?
- When is the accommodations tax return due?
This document will be posted on the DOR website www.sctax.org and distributed to attendees of our Accommodations Tax Seminars and Basic Accommodations Tax Workshops (coming in 2014).
