Taxes & Financial Wellness


Need to file your State and Federal Taxes?

  • Last year, South Carolinians submitted approximately 9,000 tax returns through The Benefit Bank of South Carolina, SC Thrive's application completion tool.
  • With SC Thrive, you can file your South Carolina State and Federal Taxes quickly, easily and at no cost if your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is less than $65,000 ($95,000 if your filing status is married filing jointly).
  • Through our system, you can get all of your return back—no filing fees or unexpected charges.
  • You can use The Benefit Bank of South Carolina to file your own taxes, or you can find an SC Thrive Tax Site to connect with an SC Thrive Tax Counselor. Our Tax Sites are organizations and agencies in your communities that you already know and trust like libraries, food banks, churches and schools!
  • Using The Benefit Bank of South Carolina, you can complete up to three years prior back taxes, as well as the current year's taxes.
  • With e-filing and direct deposit, you will usually get your refund within seven to ten business days.
  • Use the QuickCheck option at the top of the page to see if you qualify for other benefits while filing your taxes.

Are you a student?
You can also complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Worksheet through The Benefit Bank of South Carolina. When you do this, the system populated your tax information into the FAFSA Worksheet, so there's no need to enter the same information twice!
