Gov. Sanford Announces Public Events for Tax Day
April 14, 2005

Columbia, S.C. - April 14, 2005 - Gov. Mark Sanford will visit small businesses in Aiken and Greer on tax day tomorrow (April 15, 2005), roughly 24 hours after signing into law a bill that cuts South Carolina's income tax rate from 7% to 5% for small businesses. In signing the small business tax cut into law earlier today, Gov. Sanford decided at the last minute to hold onto one of the two ceremonial bill-signing pens, promising to use it again as soon as the General Assembly expands income tax relief to include all South Carolina taxpayers. The second ceremonial pen was given to House Speaker David Wilkins, under whose leadership the South Carolina House of Representatives passed the governor's broader income tax relief bill two years in a row.

"I'm taking this pen with me so I'll be ready," Gov. Sanford said. "Hopefully, the taxpayers of South Carolina won't have to wait too long to get the same income tax relief we're giving small businesses."

The governor will reaffirm income tax relief for all South Carolinians as his top legislative priority at the following times and locations tomorrow:

Aiken Office Supply & Book Shop, Inc.
2560 Whiskey Road, Aiken
11:15 a.m. 

Smith & James/ Chelsea's Clothing Store
222 Trade Street, Greer
1:45 p.m.

Prior to his small business visits in Aiken and Greer, the governor will travel to Clarendon County, visiting Ms. Sylvia Mathis' fifth-grade class at Scott's Branch Intermediate School (1154 4th Street, Summerton). The governor will arrive at Scott's Branch at approximately 9:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.

For more information or directions from your location to any of these events, please contact Chris Drummond or Will Folks in the Governor's Office at 803-734-2100.
