Every employer with employees who earn wages in the State of South Carolina must make a return or deposit to the South Carolina Department of Revenue for any taxes withheld for state purposes. This withholding tax is taken out of taxpayer wages, and it is put toward the taxpayers’ total yearly income tax liability. There are several South Carolina withholding forms, but the most common include WH 1601, WH 1605, and WH 1606. Each requires revenue-specific data: your withholding file number, gross income tax withheld, previously-made income tax deposits, and taxes due. On their own, these forms are relatively simple. However, they necessitate meticulous record keeping—something many South Carolina small businesses can’t achieve.
AMS products are perfect for calculating income tax withholding, electronically filing your forms, and building and storing a database of essential employee and revenue information. AMS Payroll, one of our most popular products, performs standard payroll functions while providing the convenience and security of a back-end data feature. This product will allow you to quickly and easily complete your South Carolina withholding forms while simultaneously building a database for future monthly, quarterly, and annual filings. If you need withholding form support, AMS has the answer.

South Carolina Withholding Forms are Easier with AMS
Tax withholding is state-specific, which means your accounting software should offer a range of South Carolina-specific forms. AMS Payroll does just that. Our South Carolina withholding forms, which includes WH 1601, WH 1605, and WH 1606, are split between two of our most popular software products.
Available on both AMS Payroll Software and our Forms Filer Plus—

If you are satisfied with your current payroll calculation and withholding system, our Forms Filer Plus may be product you need. This forms filer allows users to complete essential documentation without setting up a new payroll system. However, many customers choose to combine AMS Payroll with the Forms Filer Plus to get the most comprehensive wage and tax support possible.
