The SC General Assembly passed the Business License Standardization Act, Act 176, which went into effect Jan. 1, 2022.
This year, Act 176 requires that all taxing jurisdictions use a standardized business license class schedule recommended by the Municipal Association of South Carolina (MASC) and adopted by the Director of the SC Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office. By Dec. 31 of every odd year, the City must adopt, by ordinance, the latest Standardized Business License Class Schedule.
