THE NEW State Unemployment Insurance Tax System (SUITS) IS LIVE


This new online system is designed to help you file unemployment insurance wage reports and pay unemployment insurance taxes. 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

Please note that you can no longer make payments and file quarterly reports through the S.C. Automated Tax System (SCATS) or South Carolina Business One Stop (SCBOS) systems. First quarter tax filings/payments should be completed in SUITS no later than April 30.


To familiarize yourself with the features of the new system or to download format specification documents, please visit the SUITS page at
