South Carolina Gas Tax to Increase July 1st

The South Carolina gas tax will increase on July 1st. The tax known as the ‘Motor Fuel User Fee’ will go up by 2 cents in the final of a series of increases which were approved by the general assembly in 2017 as part of South Carolina’s Infrastructure and Economic Development Reform Act. Residents can claim a credit on their tax returns to help offset the increase and in order to do so next year, you should save receipts from gas purchases and vehicle maintenance.
