Who needs an SC 1120S form?
The form is the S Corporation Income Tax Return that is approved for use by the South Carolina Department of Revenue.
An S corporation is a business ownership structure, which lets the business avoid double taxation, due to not having to pay corporate income tax on the profits of the company. The shareholders of the company are supposed to submit individual tax returns and pay income taxes including profits made from the business.
What is the form’s purpose?
The form aims to cover all of an S corporation’s income, gains, losses, deductions, credits, etc., in order to declare the annual amount of taxes due or its absence.
Should the SC Form 1120S be accompanied by other documents?
The South Carolina form must accompany the federal tax return, form 1120S. The IRS form 1120S requires a list of schedules (B, K, L, etc.). The instruction at the IRS website prescribes whether an S corporation is required to provide any of the possible schedules or all of them -- this depends on the conditions of the reporting S corporation.
When is the S Corporation Income Tax Return due?
So far as the SC 1120S forms are to be filed with the federal 1120S forms, the due date is the 15th day of the third month (typically 15th March). If March 15th is a weekend or a state holiday the deadline is put off until the next business day.
How do I fill out the form?
In general, the SC 1120S contains several tables that besides basic information about the organization (name, address, accounting period) asks for the following information: income, deductions, license fees, gains, tax and payments, etc.
Where do I submit the completed form?
The form is to be filed with the State Department of Revenue in South Carolina. The filer should also retain a copy on file.
