How do I file for my motor fuel/preventative maintenance tax credit?
To help offset the motor fuel user fee increase paid, SC law allows a resident taxpayer a refundable motor fuel income tax credit for up to two private passenger motor vehicles or motorcycles registered in South Carolina during the year. The credit may not exceed the lesser of the resident taxpayer’s:
(a) actual motor fuel user fee increase incurred on purchases of motor fuel in South Carolina subject to the motor fuel user fee in Code Section 12-28-310(D) for an eligible vehicle or
(b) actual expenditures incurred in South Carolina on preventative maintenance for an eligible vehicle (e.g., new tires, oil changes, and regular vehicle maintenance).
The credit may first be claimed for tax years beginning in 2018 for expenses incurred during the tax year, through tax year 2022. Additional information on the credit can be found here.
The credit is claimed on the resident taxpayer’s income tax return. The credit is calculated on South Carolina Form I-385, “Motor Fuel Income Tax Credit.” This form must be included with the taxpayer’s income tax return. The form can be found here.
