South Dakota Exemption Encourages Fire Protection


 New exemption in South Dakota.

Newly enacted legislation in South Dakota encourages the use of fire protection by creating a sales and use tax exemption for certain nonprofit corporations created for the purpose of fire protection.

Effective July 1, 2016, there is a sales and use tax exemption for “the gross receipts from sales of tangible personal property, electronically transferred products, and services to any nonprofit corporation created for the purpose of fire protection that is controlled by any political subdivision” of South Dakota.

See House Bill 1204 for additional information.
