South Dakota: Pay Sales Tax With a Credit Card


 Accepted by the South Dakota Department of Revenue.

The South Dakota Department of Revenue has announced that South Dakota taxpayers may now pay tax to the state by credit card.

Visa, MasterCard or the Discover Card may be used to pay the following:

  • Sales and use tax
  • Contractors’ excise tax
  • Motor fuel tax
  • Bank franchise taxes
  • The 911 surcharge

It should be noted that a 2.45% convenience fee is charged on each credit card payment.

Electronic filers (paying via EPath) will receive a collection allowance of 1.5% of the tax due, not to exceed $70, each reporting period. However, no allowances are given on contractors’ excise tax returns or to taxpayers with delinquent accounts.

Additional information is available at the South Dakota Department of Revenue.
