Effective May 1, 2015, the Colleton and Georgetown counties will impose new sales and use taxes to fund capital projects. Additional information will be released by the South Carolina Department of Revenue at a later date.
The South Carolina Department of Revenue reminds that its charts “only address the general local option taxes collected by the Department of Revenue on behalf of the counties, municipalities, school districts, and the Catawba Indian Tribal government. They do not address the local taxes on sales of accommodations or on sales of prepared meals that are collected directly by the counties or municipalities.”
