Pierre, S.D. – With the holiday season in full swing, the South Dakota Department of Revenue reminds citizens that state and municipal use taxes may be due on their online purchases. South Dakotans owe use tax if they did not pay sales tax when making a purchase. Use tax is also due if the sales tax paid to another state was lower than what would have been paid in South Dakota—in this case the difference in the two amounts is how much use tax is owed. “Many consumers do not realize that several internet retailers are not collecting sales tax on online sales and that use tax would be due in these instances,” Business Tax Division Director Doug Schinkel said. “Cyber Monday is a good time to remind citizens to check their online transactions to see if the tax is owed.” According to the South Dakota Bureau of Finance and Management, an estimated nearly $50 million in use tax goes unreported in South Dakota each year. Like sales tax, the revenues generated from the state use tax go to the state’s general fund, which supports South Dakota’s K-12 schools, state universities, technical institutes and more. Municipal use tax revenues go to city governments, which help fund local needs. The Department of Revenue offers an online option for South Dakotans to file and pay use tax with a credit card or ACH debit transaction. This feature requires no acthe review describes additional monitoring or research count registration and can be accessed by visiting http:// needs.

Where sufficient information existed for the recovery of species, draft criteria for downlisting (changing status from endangered to threatened) and/or delisting (removing a threatened or endangered species from the state list) are described.

Wall educators work hard to really get to know their kids, and those relationships help students succeed.” National Title I Distinguished Schools are selected by their state education agency and must qualify in one of three categories: exceptional student performance for two consecutive years; closing the achievement gap between student groups; or excellence in serving special populations of students (e.g. homeless, migrant, English learners, etc.). State education agencies can nominate two schools each year. Fred Assam Elementary in the Brandon Valley School District is South Dakota’s other National Title I Distinguished School this year and is recognized for excellence in serving a special population of students (English learners).
