House Taxation Committee Approves Permanent Sales Tax Cut Bill

(Pierre, SD) — South Dakota state lawmakers are kicking off this year’s legislative session with the approval of a permanent sales tax cut bill. House Bill 10-01 would make last year’s sales tax cut indefinite by removing the 2027 sunset clause, which allows the state’s sales tax cut to remain at four-point-two percent, down from four-point-five. However, some interest groups like the South Dakota Retailers Association are expressing their opposition, arguing removing the cut’s sunset clause would put the state in a tough financial situation in the coming years. The bill made it out of the House Taxation Committee on an 11-1 vote and now moves to the full House of Representatives for consideration.
