New unemployment tax system coming soon

The S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce (DEW) is upgrading and modernizing our tax system portal.

This new online system, the State Unemployment Insurance Tax System (SUITS), is designed to help you file unemployment insurance wage reports and pay unemployment insurance taxes. It is anticipated that SUITS will be implemented in the fall of 2017. The customized system will offer immediate account accessibility and streamlined business processing with the capability to:

  • Submit online registrations and changes to obtain liability determinations.
  • Utilize online tools to file wage reports and submit tax payments.
  • Access account history.
  • Change and update account information.
  • Communicate with a DEW representative.
