dollar surcharge is also levied on all fines, forfeitures, escheatments, or other monetary penalties imposed in the general sessions court or in
magistrates’ or municipal court for misdemeanor traffic offenses or for nontraffic violations. No portion of the surcharge may be waived,
reduced, or suspended. (B)(1) The revenue collected pursuant to subsection (A) must be retained by the jurisdiction, which heard or processed
the case and paid to the State Treasurer within thirty days after receipt. The State Treasurer may retain the actual cost associated with the
collection of this surcharge not to exceed $40,000. The State Treasurer shall allocate and transfer quarterly the remaining revenue as follows:
37.75% of these funds quarterly to the circuit solicitors in the manner hereinafter provided, 22.10% to the Department of Juvenile Justice for the
Coastal Evaluation Center, for Assault Prevention, and other federal lawsuit related expenses, 15% to the State Law Enforcement Division for its
general purposes, 15% to the Department of Corrections for its general purposes, 3.75% to the Attorney General’s Office for its general purposes,

1% to the Office Appellate Defense for its general purposes, and 0.10% to the Forestry Commission for statewide police responsibilities. The
State Treasurer shall transmit the portion of these funds earmarked for the solicitors’ offices to the Prosecution Coordination Commission which
shall then apportion these funds among the circuit solicitors of this State on a per capita basis equal to the population in that circuit compared to
the population of the State as a whole based on the most recent official United States census. The funds shall be used for the operation of the
solicitors’ offices, and the solicitor may use a portion of those funds to provide for drug courts in their judicial circuits. (2) The funds received by
solicitors’ offices pursuant to this paragraph in part are to replace the funds received by solicitors in the same year from judicial circuits state
support pursuant to Paragraph 33.3 Judicial Circuits State Support. As a result and notwithstanding the provisions of item (1) above, the State
Treasurer shall withhold funds received under this paragraph for the benefit of the solicitors and transmit seventy-five percent of the
aforementioned funds to the Highway Patrol Division (DPS) to be used for a new trooper class and twenty-five percent of the aforementioned
funds to the Judicial Department until such time as these deposits equal the amounts disbursed or to be disbursed to the solicitors under
Paragraph 33.3 Judicial Circuits State Support. Thereafter, any such funds received for the benefit of the solicitors shall be disbursed to them in
the manner required in item (1) above. (C) It is the intent of the General Assembly that the amounts generated by this paragraph for use by the
solicitors’ offices shall be in addition to any amounts presently being provided by the county for these services and may not be used to supplant
funding already allocated for these services by the county. (D) The State Treasurer may request the State Auditor to examine the financial
records of any jurisdiction which he believes is not timely transmitting the funds required to be paid to the State Treasurer pursuant to subsection
(B). The State Auditor is further authorized to conduct these examinations and the local jurisdiction is required to participate in and cooperate
fully with the examination. /

addition to the tax imposed pursuant to Section 12-21-620(1), there is levied, assessed, collected, and paid upon all cigarettes made of tobacco or
any substitute for tobacco, an additional license tax equal to 2.65 cents on each cigarette made of tobacco or any substitute for tobacco. The
amount imposed pursuant to this subparagraph must be reported, paid, collected, and enforced in the same manner as the tax imposed pursuant to
Section 12-21-620(1). There is created in the state treasury the Medicaid Match Fund. The revenue of the tax imposed pursuant to this
subparagraph must be credited to the Medicaid Match Fund. This fund must be separate and distinct from the general fund of the State. Monies
in the fund must be used by the Department of Health and Human Services solely as the state match for federal Medicaid funding. The fund is
exempt from any budgetary cuts or reductions caused by the lack of general fund revenues. Earnings on investments of monies in the fund must be
credited to the fund and used for the same purposes as other monies in the fund. Any monies in the fund not expended during a fiscal year must be
carried forward to the succeeding fiscal year and used for the same purposes.
     (B) Effective January 1, 2004, the license taxes imposed on cigarettes by Article 5, Chapter 21, Title 12 of the 1976 Code and this
subparagraph must be paid by affixing stamps to each individual package in the manner and at the time set forth in this subparagraph. A stamp
evidencing the taxes imposed may not be of a denomination of less than one cent and whenever the tax computed at the rate prescribed is a
specified amount plus a fractional part of one cent, the package must be stamped for the next full cent. The Department of Revenue may authorize
wholesale dealers in cigarettes to store cigarettes intended to be sold and shipped out of this State in separate compartments of their business
without affixing revenue stamps. However, a wholesale dealer making shipments of cigarettes to locations out of this State shall apply to the
department for a license that allows the wholesale dealer to maintain the separate compartments authorized by this item. A wholesale dealer in
cigarettes violating the rules and regulations permitting the storage of cigarettes without affixing the stamps is liable for the penalties contained in
Title 12 of the 1976 Code. The stamps must be affixed to each individual package by wholesalers within seventy-two hours after the products are
received by them and by retailers within twenty-four hours of receipt by them of these products. In any event, these goods must be stamped before
being sold. If cigarettes are manufactured within the State and sold directly to consumers, they must be stamped by the manufacturer when and as
sold. Each person or distributor of taxable cigarettes first receiving untaxed cigarettes for sale or distribution in this State is subject to the taxes
imposed by Article 5, Chapter 21, Title 12 of the 1976 Code and subparagraph (A) of this paragraph. Each person or distributor required to pay
the taxes by affixing stamps must also make a report to the department, in the form the department prescribes, of all cigarettes and cigarette tax
stamps in inventory at the beginning and end of the month, all cigarettes and cigarette tax stamps purchased during the month, all cigarettes
disposed of in this State during the month, and other information required by law or considered necessary by the department. If the report
indicates that the person or distributor did not stamp all cigarettes disposed of, the person or distributor shall pay the additional taxes with the
report. The report and taxes, if any additional taxes are due with the report, are due no later than the twentieth day of the month next succeeding
the month of the purchase or disposition. Cigarettes held in inventory on January 1, 2004, by the person or distributor who first received the



3749-62
cigarettes into this State must be stamped as provided by this subparagraph. Credit must be allowed for any taxes previously paid on the
cigarettes.
     (C) Section 12-21-735 is suspended effective January 1, 2004, for the remainder of the current fiscal year.
     (D)(1) This subparagraph may be cited as the Economic Recovery Tax Relief Act.
        (2) For purposes of this subparagraph:
          (a) “Board of Economic Advisors” means the Board of Economic Advisors of the State Budget and Control Board established pursuant
to Section 11-9-820 of the 1976 Code.
          (b) “Board of Economic Advisors revenue estimate” means a Board of Economic Advisors estimate of revenues made by October tenth
of each year as required by this subparagraph.
          (c) “Individual income tax revenue” means total state individual income tax revenue for a fiscal year.
          (d) “Individual income tax general fund revenue” means individual income tax revenue reduced by amounts required to be deducted
and credited to the Trust Fund for Tax Relief pursuant to Section 11-11-150. In determining individual income tax general fund revenue, the
amount deducted from individual income tax revenue for credit to the Trust Fund for Tax Relief must be an amount which bears the same ratio to
the total Trust Fund for Tax Relief amount for a fiscal year as individual income tax revenue bears to the sum of individual income tax revenue
and corporate income tax revenue for the fiscal year.
          (e) “Base revenue” means $2,092,691,000 adjusted upward by one and one-half percent a fiscal year beginning with the fiscal year
immediately succeeding the fiscal year in which individual income tax general fund revenue first equals or exceeds $2,092,691,000.
          (f) “Economic recovery revenue” means the amount by which the Board of Economic Advisors revenue estimate for individual income
tax general fund revenue exceeds base revenue.
          (g) “Cigarette tax increase” means a state tax on cigarettes in excess three and one-half mills a cigarette.
          (h) “Cumulative cigarette tax increase” means the sum of state revenues derived from a cigarette tax increase for each completed
fiscal year since inception.

following the close of the fiscal year base revenue, individual income tax revenue for the fiscal year that just ended, individual income tax general
fund revenue for the fiscal year that just ended, and the cumulative cigarette tax increase.
     (4) Beginning with individual income tax liability for taxable years beginning after December 31,2003, and each taxable year thereafter and
continuing until the date provided in item (9), there is allowed an Economic Recovery Tax Credit allocated among the individual income
taxpayers of South Carolina as provided in item (5) of this subparagraph. The Economic Recovery Tax Credit is nonrefundable for individual
income taxpayers. Except as provided in item (7), the total Economic Recovery Tax Credit allowed is an amount equal to eighty percent of the
economic recovery revenue for the current fiscal year. There is no Economic Recovery Tax Credit allowed in a fiscal year in which there is no
economic recovery revenue. The amount of the Economic Recovery Tax Credit allowed for a specific fiscal year is realized by an individual
taxpayer for a taxable year ending on or after December thirty-first during that specific fiscal year.
     (5) The Board of Economic Advisors shall calculate and certify the total amount of the Economic Recovery Tax Credit to the Department of
Revenue by October tenth of each year. The Department of Revenue shall establish a method to apply the Economic Recovery Tax Credit to
individual income tax returns that meets each of the following criteria:




3749-63
        (a) the amount of the Economic Recovery Tax Credit realized by an individual taxpayer must be an amount which bears the same ratio to
the total amount of the Economic Recovery Tax Credit as the income tax due as shown on the taxpayer’s income tax return before taking the
Economic Recovery Tax Credit bears to the individual income tax revenue for the fiscal year;
        (b) the Economic Recovery Tax Credit realized by individual taxpayers must be determined by a formula that calculates the Economic
Recovery Tax Credit in terms of a percentage reduction to the state income tax liability of each individual; and,
        (c) the Economic Recovery Tax Credit does not produce a negative income tax liability for individual income taxpayers.
     (6) The individual income tax rates imposed for each income bracket pursuant to Section 12-6-510 are reduced by one-half of a percentage
point effective for taxable years beginning on or after the first day of January immediately following the close of the fiscal year in which a Board
of Economic Advisors revenue estimate provides that the sum of the cumulative amount of Economic Recovery Tax Credit allowed pursuant to this
section since enactment for completed fiscal years, and the Economic Recovery Tax Credit established in October of the current fiscal year, equals
or exceeds the sum of the cumulative cigarette tax increase and the Board of Economic Advisors revenue estimate of the cigarette tax increase
through December thirty-first of the current fiscal year and the total Economic Recovery Tax Credit for the current fiscal year is sufficient to offset
a one-half percentage point reduction in individual income tax rates for each income bracket during the current calendar year.
     (7) Effective at the beginning of the fiscal year following the income tax rate reductions provided for in item (6), and continuing for
succeeding fiscal years until the Economic Recovery Tax Credit is terminated pursuant to item (9), the Economic Recovery Tax Credit amount
defined in item (4) is an amount equal to fifty percent of each fiscal year’s economic recovery revenue.
     (8) After the income tax rate reductions and adjustment of the Economic Recovery Tax Credit amount provided in items (6) and (7) are
implemented, the rates for each income bracket are permanently reduced by one and one-half of a percentage point effective for taxable years
beginning on or after the first day of January immediately following the close of the fiscal year in which the current fiscal year Board of Economic
Advisors revenue estimate provides that the total Economic Recovery Tax Credit for the current fiscal year is sufficient to offset a one and one-half
percentage point reduction in individual income tax rates for each income bracket during the current calendar year, and in each of the two fiscal
years immediately preceding the current fiscal year, the Economic Recovery Tax Credit was sufficient to offset a one and one-half percentage
point reduction in state individual income tax rates for each income bracket based upon actual individual income tax revenue as certified by the
Comptroller General.
     (9) The Economic Recovery Tax Credit provided by this subparagraph terminates effective the first taxable year in which the permanent
reduction to individual income tax rates provided by item (8) takes effect.
     (10) The Department of Revenue shall apply the income tax rate reductions provided in items (6) and (7) to the then applicable rates, and
these rates as reduced, apply in lieu of the former rates. After the income tax rate reductions provided for in item (6) take effect, the Department
of Revenue shall calculate the effective tax rates for each income bracket resulting from the application of the Economic Recovery Tax Credit for
each taxable year that the Economic Recovery Tax Credit is allowed. These effective rates must be printed with tax tables and posted on the
department’s web site.         /
