SC Safe Home Program
The Department of Insurance Regulation 69-75 provides that the standards, which must be met by an individual taxpayer to qualify for state income tax credits for costs to fortify their legal residence pursuant to S.C. Code Section 12-6-3660 or sales and use tax credits pursuant to S.C. Code Section 12-6-3665, are the same as those required under the SC Safe Home Program. The standards are contained in the South Carolina Safe Home Resource Document for Mitigation Techniques dated July 2008, developed for the SC Safe Home Program by the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes.
Fortification measures must be accomplished in accordance with the standards contained in the South Carolina Safe Home Resource Document for Mitigation Techniques. All products must have an International Code Council (ICC) Evaluation Services Legacy Report or other appropriate test reports acceptable to the local building officials for the intended use.
