 Sales and use tax rate changes to hit four small towns in South Dakota on July 1.

While local sales and use tax rate changes can occur at any time in some states, they can only be implemented on the first of January and July in South Dakota.

New sales and use taxes

  • Dante: 1%
  • Lake City: 1%

Sales and use tax rate increases

  • Morristown: from 1% to 1.5%

In addition to municipal sales tax, local tax jurisdictions may impose a gross receipts tax on admissions, alcohol, eating establishments, and lodging. More details are available from the South Dakota Department of Revenue.
