    Overview of the South Carolina Job Tax Credit

    The Job Tax Credit (JTC) is a statutory incentive offered to companies, both existing and new, that create new jobs in the state. This credit is extremely beneficial for companies, because it is a credit against corporate income taxes, which can eliminate up to 50% of a company’s liability.

      Tax credits off-set tax liability dollar for dollar. Some companies use credits in their tax planning to off-set quarterly estimated payments. Some companies use credits at the end of their tax year against annual tax liability. In the event of no tax liability, tax credits can be carried forward for up to twenty years. Consult with your tax professional for how to best use these incentives.
