                          INCOME TAX CREDIT!!

References: SC §12-6-3350 – Income Tax Credit for State Contractors Having
                                  Subcontracts with MINORITY Firms

Taxpayers, who utilize certified minority subcontractors, may take a tax credit equal to 4% of the
payments they make to said subcontractors. The payments claimed must be based on work performed
directly for a South Carolina state contract. The credit is capped at $25,000 per year or the total tax
liability; whichever is lesser. The taxpayer is eligible to claim the credit for 6 consecutive taxable
years beginning with the taxable year in which the credit is first claimed. There is no carry forward of
unused credits.

The credit may be claimed on Form TC-2, “Minority Business Credit.” A copy of the subcontractor’s
certificate from the Governor’s Office of Small and Minority Business (OSMBA) is to be attached to
the contractor’s income tax return. Taxpayers must maintain evidence of work performed for a State
contract by the minority subcontractor.

Questions regarding the tax credit and how to file are to be referred to:

Small and Minority Business Assistance (OSMBA). Certificates are issued to subcontractors upon
successful completion of the certification process. Questions regarding subcontractor certification are

              FOIA BIDDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR INVITATIONS FOR BID
(Where bidder is submitting only cost information and information for the determination of responsibility)

SUBMITTING CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION: For every document Offeror submits in response to or with regard
to this solicitation, Offeror must separately mark with the word “CONFIDENTIAL” every page, or portion thereof, that
Offeror contends contains information that is exempt from public disclosure because it is either (a) a trade secret as defined
in Section 30-4-40(a)(1), or (b) privileged and confidential, as that phrase is used in Section 11-35-410. For every
document Offeror submits in response to or with regard to this solicitation, Offeror must separately mark with the words
“TRADE SECRET” every page, or portion thereof, that Offeror contends contains a trade secret as that term is defined by
the Trade Secrets Act. All markings must be conspicuous; use color, bold, underlining, or some other method in order to
conspicuously distinguish the mark from the other text. If a portion of a bid or proposal is improperly marked as
confidential or trade secret, the State may, in its sole discretion, determine it non-responsive. If only portions of a page are
protected, do not mark the entire page. By submitting a bid or proposal, Offeror (1) consents to the release of documents
governed by Section 11-35-1810 unless Offeror conspicuously states otherwise on the cover of its bid or proposal, (2)
agrees to the public disclosure of any documents regarding this solicitation submitted at any time prior to entering into a
contract (including, but not limited to, documents contained in a bid or proposal, documents submitted to clarify either a
bid or proposal, and documents submitted during negotiations), unless the document is conspicuously marked “TRADE
SECRET” or “CONFIDENTIAL” (3) agrees that any information not marked, as required by these bidding instruction, as
a “TRADE SECRET” is not a trade secret as defined by the Trade Secrets Act, and (4) that, notwithstanding any claims or
markings otherwise, any prices used to determine the award are subject to public disclosure. In determining whether to
release documents, the State will detrimentally rely on Offeror’s marking of documents, as required by these bidding

                                                               4
instructions, as being either “CONFIDENTIAL” or “TRADE SECRET”. By submitting a bid or proposal, Offeror
agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the State of South Carolina, It’s officers and employees, from every claim,
demand, loss, expense, cost, damage, or injury, including attorney’s fees, arising out of or resulting from the State
withholding information that Offeror marked as “CONFIDENTIAL” or “TRADE SECRET”. (All references to S.C.
Code of Laws.)

                          IMPORTANT TAX NOTICE - NONRESIDENTS ONLY

Withholding Requirements for Payments to Nonresidents: Section 12-8-550 of the South Carolina
Code of Laws requires persons hiring or contracting with a nonresident conducting a business or
performing personal services of a temporary nature within South Carolina to withhold 2% of each
payment made to the nonresident. The withholding requirement does not apply to (1) payments on
purchase orders for tangible personal property when the payments are not accompanied by services to
be performed in South Carolina, (2) nonresidents who are not conducting business in South Carolina,
(3) nonresidents for contracts that do not exceed $10,000 in a calendar year, or (4) payments to a
nonresident who (a) registers with either the S.C. Department of Revenue or the S.C. Secretary of State
and (b) submits a Nonresident Taxpayer Registration Affidavit - Income Tax Withholding, Form I-312
to the person letting the contract.

The withholding requirement applies to every governmental entity that uses a contract ("Using
Entity"). Nonresidents should submit a separate copy of the Nonresident Taxpayer Registration
Affidavit - Income Tax Withholding, Form I-312 to every Using Entity that makes payment to the
nonresident pursuant to this solicitation. Once submitted, an affidavit is valid for all contracts between
the nonresident and the Using Entity, unless the Using Entity receives notice from the Department of
Revenue that the exemption from withholding has been revoked.
                                            -----------------------
Section 12-8-540 requires persons making payment to a nonresident taxpayer of rentals or royalties at
a rate of $1,200.00 or more a year for the use of or for the privilege of using property in South Carolina
to withhold 7% of the total of each payment made to a nonresident taxpayer who is not a corporation
and 5% if the payment is made to a corporation. Contact the Department of Revenue for any applicable
exceptions.
                                            -----------------------
For information about other withholding requirements (e.g., employee withholding), contact the
Withholding Section at the South Carolina Department of Revenue at 803-898-5383 or visit the

Volume
The total quantity of purchases of any individual item on the contract is not known due to the changes

during the term of the contract shall be filled in accordance with the terms and conditions hereinafter
set forth, except that the contractor shall not be required to ship any amount in excess of the normal use
requirements of the ordering agency for a period beginning with the date of the purchase order and
