About The Book
South Carolina Taxation and Economic Tax Incentives, Third Edition
This Third Edition to what has become a classic text on South Carolina tax matters has been updated and expanded to continue to provide in-depth coverage of every major South Carolina tax area, as well as economic tax incentives and practice before the South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR). In the Third Edition, the authors continue to present in depth discussions of corporate and individual income tax, license tax on corporations, tax credits and S.C. withholding tax rules. Comprehensive analysis is given to sales tax, including the nature and incidence of sales tax, drop shipments, the nature and incidence of the use tax, rates and collection of tax, jurisdiction to tax, imports and exports, wholesale sale exclusions, exemptions, casual sales, local option sales tax and special local option taxes, reciprocal credits, interest and penalties, and much more. In addition to income tax, property tax, and sales tax, the book continues to explain the often incurred but little understood business license tax imposed by counties and cities.
This Third Edition remains the only comprehensive treatise on South Carolina tax law written by practitioners
