South Dakota Department of Revenue hosting agriculture tax seminars




PIERRE, S.D.—The South Dakota Department of Revenue will introduce its agriculture tax seminars this spring.



The first of the seminars will take place March 14 at the Gettysburg City Fire Hall, while DOR will host the second March 15 in Winner at the Holiday Inn Express. Seminars on both dates are free of charge.



“We value our relationship with South Dakotans who work in the agriculture industry, and we understand their value to the entire state,” said Education Coordinator Courtney Dosch. “We hope that these seminars will assist them in their partnership with us.” (***Download Dosch audio here***)



The seminars are designed for those looking for a specific understanding of ag-related tax issues. The department will offer insight from its business tax, motor vehicles and audits divisions. The seminars will also feature detailed information on specific situations that members of the agriculture industry often encounter.



“There are many different tax laws that apply to South Dakota’s agriculture industry,” says David Skaggs, South Dakota Department of Agriculture ag development representative. “These seminars will provide valuable, easy to understand information about the tax laws giving those impacted a better understanding of which laws do and do not apply to their farm, ranch or agribusiness operation.” (***Download Skaggs audio here***)



The department asks attendees to submit specific questions and scenarios in advance so tax experts can provide in-depth answers. To register for one of these seminars, submit a question, or get more information on the educational calendar, please visit https://apps.sd.gov/rv23education/classes.aspx.



Agriculture is a major contributor to South Dakota’s economy, generating $25.6 billion in annual economic activity and employing over 115,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect and preserve this industry for today and tomorrow.
