The South Carolina Department of Revenue (DOR) is encouraging taxpayers to be patient before continuing their credit monitoring with Experian or any other company, Samantha Cheek of the South Carolina Department of Revenue said on Tuesday.
The DOR said they will announce which vendor they choose for the future to protect taxpayers' credit and identification information between Sept. 23 and Sept. 27.
DOR Director Bill Blume stated, "It is our goal to protect the private information of South Carolina citizens, and we want to ensure that individuals are aware of the state provided credit and identity theft protection available for a second year."
The final details of the state provided protection service will be in place by Oct. 24. The DOR said there will be no gap where taxpayers are not covered by a plan.
Experian users are covered for one year from the date they enrolled, according to Cheek.
