COLUMBIA, S.C. – The South Carolina Chamber released the below statement following the passage by the SC House Tax Policy Review Committee of a proposal to reform personal income tax in South Carolina:  

“The business community is encouraged by the House’s efforts to look at South Carolina’s tax code and lower our top personal income tax rate of 7%, which is the highest in the Southeast” said South Carolina Chamber President & CEO Ted Pitts. “The business community wants to work with policy makers to reform South Carolina’s tax code, making it more competitive for workers and job creators.”
