South Dakota Downtowns Coming Alive In Some Cities

Online retail sales may in a roundabout way be helping revitalize downtown areas.  Nathan Sanderson, Executive Director of the South Dakota Retailers Association, says a number of cities are seeing new life in their downtowns as other locations decline….

Online sellers started collecting state sales taxes on November first.  Sanderson says they will be involved in tax discussions in the 2019 legislative session…

The half cent sales tax increase for teacher pay was passed with an amendment attached that would roll back that tax as online sales rise.  Sanderson says retailers would like to see a stable tax rate…

Sanderson says his group will watch for any legislation that may change that amendment.
