South Dakota Repeals Sales Tax on Food Refund Program


South Dakota HB 1206, “An Act to make an appropriation for emergency food assistance grants and to repeal the sales tax on food refund program, “ was signed by the Governor yesterday, March 19, 2012.

The Sales Tax on Food Refund Program “…provides refunds of sales tax payments on food to South Dakota residents who qualify for the program.” This program has now been repealed.

Instead of this program, “any general funds … shall be reappropriated [sic] to the Department of Social Services for grants for the purpose of emergency food assistance.”
