I figured how much was paid and the amount for 15 days vacant would come to $140.00 that I am looking at getting a refund for. Why should the state get that if the rental was vacant? And yes I am refunding the difference to the renters for when they had to leave. I know times are bad now and these are issues that never had to come up before, I want to help others in the same situation.
I'm set up quarterly on line here:

<Remove the (space) in the above link....they won't let me post complete links>

(THEY call it "sales and use tax", and it's 9% total in Sumter Co....THEY split it FOR you)

If you don't have renters for the quarter, you just put in $0.00

I only rent through April, so I'm set up to pay the first quarter April 17th. (have a reminder set on my phone calendar)
My renters are leaving early to go back to Canada today, and I'm giving them a refund.
Since it's set up this way, I can just adjust the total, in THIS case..

You can pay right on line.

Hope this helps,
