State-Provided Identity Protection Service

The data breach at the SC Department of Revenue in mid-September 2012 compromised the personal information of 3.8 million people who have filed tax returns in SC since 1998. The one year free protection provided by Experian has ended.

The state has contracted with a different company, CSID, to provide up to one year (ends October 31, 2014) of identity and credit protection coverage. If you were affected by the data breach and want to enroll in the new protection program, visit SCIDprotection.com or call 855-880-2743. You can enroll until October 1, 2014.

Here's an Overview of CSID’s Identity Theft Protection Services.

You can get more information at the South Carolina Department of Revenue website.
