The municipal tax changes taking effect include:

 

Ramona, S.D., increasing its one percent general sales and use tax rate to two percent.

 

Hurley, S.D., decreasing its one percent municipal gross receipts tax rate to zero percent on lodging, eating establishments, and alcoholic beverages. It will continue its 2 percent general sales and use tax rate.

 

Sisseton, S.D., continuing its one percent municipal gross receipts tax rate that was set to expire on June 30, 2016 on lodging, eating establishments and alcoholic beverages. This tax is in addition to their 2 percent general sales and use tax rate.

 

South Dakota municipalities are able to implement new tax rates or change existing tax rates on Jan. 1 or July 1 each year. The municipal tax changes listed above are in addition to the state sales and use tax increase that took effect June 1.

Updated bulletins are free of charge and available after Jan. 1.
